most likely the problem is that they all have the same 'Class' 
basically the way to fix this is symlink 4 of them with different names
[wmWeather-place, wmWeather-otherplace, etc] and put those names and 
executables in the Wharf file for those apps.  this way, the Wharf 
will not get confused about which of 5 wmWeather apps to swallow for
the first block.
