gFTP icon in WindowMaker dock

I have gFTP docked in WindowMaker, and set to a custom icon (the download manager icon from the KDE Crystal theme). When I launch gFTP, the icon in the dock changes to the gFTP client-supplied default icon. But when I quit gFTP, the dock icon reverts to its customized state. Also, when gFTP is minimized, the minimized window icon is the custom one. Is there any way that I can keep that dock icon from changing into the default one when I launch gFTP?

Probably not...the program usually carries with it some image information, and short of trying to alter that information and then compile gftp yourself it's not really overridable. You could try tracking down the whereabouts of the default image that it's using, though, and replacing that image with your custom one.

Heheh, I hadn't thought of that. But it works like a charm. (For reference, the icon is stored in /usr/share/gftp/gftp.xpm) Thanks!
