WM_CLASS not set correctly on OpenBSD

Post by blindsay »

None of the methods for getting the execution path in magick/utility.c GetExecutionPath() work on OpenBSD (and potentially the other BSDs). This leads to the X11 WM_CLASS being set to the current directory rather than the name of the program. This in turn breaks window manager handling that uses WM_CLASS. As a quick hack, I did:

Code: Select all
