So ratpoison doesn't use getsid anymore, fixing all known glitches. Still, it will only print PIDs of its direct children. If you don't like this behavior please provide input.

Care to comment on whether the issue has been dealt with? ;)

This is a bit complicated. To print the pid, the process that holds the window has to be a direct child of ratpoison. Else you get '?'. And if that process is not in the same session as ratpoison, the result is OS dependant (some OSes don't allow getsid(pid) if the current process and pid aren't in the same session). Now ratpoison checks for a getsid error (this fixes a bug on those platforms), but we might stop caring about the session id one of those days...

Can you confirm that windows that are direct children of ratpoison have their pid printed correctly?

ratpoison 1.4.6

The PID of the current focused window cannot be determined (example: info "%p" returns '?').
