Ah, hmm.  This I don't know about (not running Sawfish..., don't even
have it installed, not running RH either).

Again, tho, if RH is showing "Sawfish Options," I'd file a serious bug
report against it (in RH's database, for fscked up local configuration)
- the user shouldn't in any way have to be subjected to the fact that
WM's even exist; that was half the point such options were removed from
core GNOME2.

Since there may be no alternative, again, you should tell RH this in
their bugzilla so they can at least move the Sawfish icons to a sub
directory/section in the preferences:// view (just like the Advanced and
Accessibility sub-sections exist, at least with the Debian packages...).
