Strange problem (sortof) with Sawfish on gtk2 on Mandy 9.0

I've recently upgraded to Mandy 9.0 that has the lovely and stylish gtk2 installed. As per usual, my windowmanager is the fantastic sawfish... and that's where the problems start! Sawfish runs absolutely fine for a while, but then, after a while, when I try to access the menu for any window, or try to access the sawfish config menu, it gives me the standard audio warning (short sharp beep from PC speaker) and prints Error: Menu already active onto tty1. Now, I don't actually have the sawfish menu running, but psing shows that I do, well, it shows rep /blardy-blah/sawfish-menu is running on tty1. I try killing it, but it still persists on the psing, however, after I try to kill it, I can then access the sawfish menus, even though the thing still appears on the psing!

Now, because I can actually access the menu by killing the rep sawfish-menu process, it isn't really a problem per se, but I'd still appreciate anyone's thoughts and ideas.
