That(!) is an interesting point, although admittedly more WindowMaker than
GNUstep: Does DND "work" for you?

The reason I ask is the following: it doesn't work for me (what's may be
obvious), and that has a history. It used to work with Debian 'woody' and
WindowMaker 0.8 (iirc), but when 'legacy OFFIX_DND' was removed, it didn't
any longer - now with version 0.91 for Debian 'sarge', it doesn't.

I then tried to recompile WindowMaker myself with enabled XDND - declared
as experimental - in wconfig.h; but now there is a missing function/macro
get_dnd_selection() (from the 'old' OFFIX_DND implentation, obviously) in
misc.c, that prevents the compilation.

Thus my question - has anyone got a working version of DND and can explain
an innocent fool :-) how to make it work?

Thanks a lot,
