IceWM 1.2.15 on Debian 3.1 testing

Unfortunately, debian forces me to chose between running ancient apps, or not getting security updates. IceWM 1.2.15 is the newest version I can install.

In deference to the documentation, there does not seem to be any ~/.icewm files or directories. There are only /etc/X11/icewm/ files.

I am trying to edit the toolbar file. Right now I am just trying to add vim. Here is what I have:

prog XTerm xterm x-terminal-emulator
prog vim vim vim vim
#prog "vim" /usr/share/pixmaps/vim.svg /usr/bin/vim
#prog "vim" /usr/share/pixmaps/vim.svg vim
#prog "vim" /usr/share/pixmaps/vim.svg vim -f
prog "Mozilla Firefox" /usr/share/pixmaps/mozilla-firefox.xpm firefox

I am trying to follow the examples of xterm and firefox, since those work.

Q1: why does xterm have 4 parameters, while firefox has 3?

Q2: why does my active vim entry display the button, and the icon, but will not launce vim?

Q3: none of the commented out entries would launch vim either, why not?

Q4: what about the other buttons on the toolbar, why aren't they in toolbar file?

Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.
