See this scenario: I have an acme window open and an rc window. I run wloc > myriostart. The next time I try to reconstruct that window layout with rio -i myriostart. The result is, one acme window. No rc window, since it's impossible to run rc with a pid as an argument. You can say it's a feature or a bug, whatever you want. Imo this way wloc is only partially reliable. More things to reconsider: what if I relabel the acme window? It's still an acme window, but with a different name, and I get no windows since the label doesn't name a program. What if I relabel the acme window with some existing program? For example, stats? I get a huge stats window and not an acme window at all. What if I relabel my acme window to fshalt? 🤔😂 ... Ok that's probably your own fault then... In the end, when using wloc and programs you download from anywhere else, always check the labels of your windows. sirjofri
