Fixed a long time ago.

Same here. Adding something simple such as "addhook restart exec xterm" causes ratpoison to crash on start-up with the message:

      • glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x0804a3dc ***

Everytime I've tried to use the 'addhook' command, ratpoison has immediately crashed. For example:

alias beep aplay /usr/share/sounds/beep.wav
addhook switchframe beep

Ratpoison will crash as soon as it processes the above addhook command.
