As a matter of fact there is no way to predict
which of your wmmons is gonna be swallowed where
since you gave them both the same window title.
To avoid that, you should have different copies
of wmmon under different names (a symlink is
sufficient) and then run them correspondingly:

*Wharf wmcpu - MaxSwallow "wmmon" wmmon &
*Wharf wmmem - MaxSwallow "wmcpu" wmcpu -s &

Since wmmon makes the window title equal to the name
of the app executable.

Hope this helps even more :)
