Verified.  It's working properly now.  Sorry for the false alarm. :)

I believe that this might have been due to an inconsistent build.  I cleaned the system and built again and it works properly now.  I will do some more testing to make sure, but I think it was a false alarm.

At any rate, my window manager is WindowMaker 0.91 and the default mentioned is not set.

We had a discussion about "mini windows" on the GNUstep mailing list just about a month ago.

Perhaps the following answer helps you as well. At least it help Andreas Schik who started that thread. If your problem persists, could you please provide some information about your settings and your window manager?

OK, thanks for the hint. I played around with WMaker's mini window
settings and found that the menu works if I switch on 'omnipresent
mini windows'. As i use only one workspace I ignored this setting so
far. But still mini windows work only if GSAppOwnsMiniwindow is set to
NO ( as you descrbe above).
What is the reason behind GSAppOwnsMiniwindow anyway? What do I
achieve if I set it to YES?

When trying to minimize a window, it seems that the window icon minimizes and disappears.   This is a recent bug as it just started with the update I did today.

if you start any application, open a window and click the minimize button, the applications window will shrink, but it will disappear once it gets to the bottom of the screen.
