I wasn't going to say anything on this thread, but decided to after I
saw what his fix was.  Here is a tip for you all about Wharf.  When
you Swallow or MaxSwallow an app, the thing in double quotes should be 
the title of the window that is created.  If you use:

*Wharf wmsysmon - MaxSwallow "wmsysmon" /usr/local/bin/wmsysmon &

it won't work.  The title of the app is "/usr/local/bin/wmsysmon", not 
"wmsysmon".  So, take care and make sure that the title you put in the 
wharf (Max)Swallow is the same that appears on the window when it is
