FluxBox is a popular window manager for X, working under Linux/Unix operating systems. It's based on BlackBox and has 100% theme/style compability.
(Xman is a manual page browser for the X Window Systems.)
Fluxbox always crashes totally while executing XMAN with long value of
'-title' parameter. Simple usage example:
$ xman -title `perl -e 'print "X" x 10000 '`
It was tested on 0.9.10 version and some older ones. Probably all are affected.
