Awesome Window manager ~ resize window key bindings do not work.

Ubuntu 10.04
OpenBSD 4.8

According to their wiki and as indicated in the rc.lua resizing windows both tiled or floating is possible from the keyboard
rc.lua bits:


awful.key({ modkey,          }, "l",    function () awful.tag.incmwfact( 0.05)    end),
    awful.key({ modkey,          }, "h",    function () awful.tag.incmwfact(-0.05)    end),
    awful.key({ modkey, "Shift"  }, "h",    function () awful.tag.incnmaster( 1)      end),
    awful.key({ modkey, "Shift"  }, "l",    function () awful.tag.incnmaster(-1)      end),
    awful.key({ modkey, "Control" }, "h",    function () awful.tag.incncol( 1)        end),
    awful.key({ modkey, "Control" }, "l",    function () awful.tag.incncol(-1)        end),

None of the above binding do a damn thing! They are defaults from the copied over rc.lua residing in ~/.config/awesome/. Awesome has potential in a way I can't even describe. If these resizing key-bindings actually did what they purport to, I would be in wm heaven.

If I am being an idiot and have failed to miss some key element of the FM, please flame me without mercy. Bear in mind though, I've read TFM as well as the Wiki. Also, this is on two different systems running different OS's.

This is soooo close to being freaky perfect I can't stand it.

Thanks, and merry X-mas!

** UPDATE **
It seems to work under some circumstances/tile formats, but not others. If I change the format, I lose the power to resize, even if I float a window. So the new question is: under what circumstances can you resize a window, tiled or floated? I don't see a pattern. And where is this documented?
