[Problem] [WindowMaker] Missing the dock on start of x... confused.

So, I have been having a great time with the simplicity of WindowMaker, as well as the fact that is great for lower end computers. But, I started my computer one day, (everything looking normal,) but when I started X, there was no dock, just an xterm (which I had stay there for the session save,) and the icon of xterm. But that was it. No Dock or clip or anything... Totally confused.

See attached image for description... though I don't think one is needed.

Thanks in advance.

I would suggest you :

1. Exit wmaker
2. rename $HOME/GNUstep to another name
3. start wmaker and see what happens. a new ~/GNUstep will be generated

to see if the issue still occurs
