Exit is gone from my menu!

I'm using WindowMaker and I don't know how I did it, but when I right click to bring up the menu, I no longer have the option to exit! Also gone is the WindowMaker option from the Sessions submenu, but I'm not as worried about that.

How can I add exit back into the menu? i don't see a way to do it in the WindowMaker prefs

okay, figured it out. sorry to post hastily. i thought i'd post my bandaid fix in case anyone stumbles across this:

I went to $(HOME)/GNUstep/Defaults/WMRootMenu and this file pointed to /usr/share/WindowMaker/menu

This file said not to edit it because it was automatically generated, so i backed up my copy and had my friend shoot me his menu and i copied the file, overwriting my old menu file. works so far.
