The x11/avant-window-navigator app seems to fail with the new gnome release (currently 2.28). With medium screen resolutions seems to start by adding a "-sync" when starting it. But with large screen resolutions (twinview resolutions of 2560x1280) it refuses to start.
It seems that the problem has something to do with an incorrect memory initialization. Patching $WRKSRC/libawn/awn-settings.c fixes the problem.
Fix: Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Start avant-window-navigator from command-line.
Over to maintainer (via the GNATS Auto Assign Tool)

Thanks for the patch! Is there any chance you may want to take awn
maintainership? I've never used it to begin with and was just asked to
create the port, so I'm obviously the worst maintainer for it, you on
the other hand use it and were able to find and fix a bug.
