Wharf and Database problems in 1.7.145

	Getting patches 2 and 3 for 1.7.142 solved almost all of my problems. I
only have two left. One has been around for a while and the other is
fairly new. The first is rare, but it's still reproducible. Occasionally,
when the wharf is swallowing, it will fail to swallow one or two apps into
the center of the tile, instead the app is pushed to the upper-left
corner. This doesn't always happen, nor does it always happen to the same
one. I put up a picture of a incorrect tile next to a correct tile at:

This trouble may be related to output I get from the wharf whenever I stop
it:

X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  4 (X_DestroyWindow)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x2800023
  Serial number of failed request:  225
  Current serial number in output stream:  228
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  4 (X_DestroyWindow)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x2400005
  Serial number of failed request:  857
  Current serial number in output stream:  860
X Error of failed request:  BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window
parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  62 (X_CopyArea)
  Resource id in failed request:  0x1c00001
  Serial number of failed request:  29128
  Current serial number in output stream:  29144

	Now for the second problem, around the time I went from 1.7.136 to
1.7.142, the StartsOnDesk function in the database stopped working. I am
still using the same database file (which used to work flawlessly) and
everything else works as advertised, execpt for StartsOnDesk. I hope both
of these are small bugs and easy to fix. Thanks for making such a great
window manager.
