I think this problem is the same as reported in #26438 (which also has a little explanation for this bug, which is in -back and not in -gui).

As a workaround, I'm using the attached tiny tool. Compile and install the tool, e.g., in /usr/GNUstep/Local/Tools, and then add the line


to your $HOME/GNUstep/Library/WindowMaker/autostart file.

(file #19427)

I have this problem only on WindowMaker. And is just with the first app that I run (not the first app that I minimize).

I think this is a gui bug.

I too notice sometimes that I can deminimize applications, but i am not sure if it is always the first application. But It could explain why I have problems with GWorkspace or Terminal most of the times: I usuallys tart with them!

On WindowMaker when you run the first GNUstep app in your session, and you minimize this. You can't deminimize it after. Or if the app become inactive (for example gorm that just have panels) you can't active the app with a double click on the icon. This just happen with first GNUstep app that you run in your session.
