Indeed, it may. If the form is transient the program seems to hang in
the call to fl_winshow() and more specifically in the call to
wait_mapwin(). It may seem stupid to want to uniconify transient forms,
but olvwm, which I otherwise like, does not uniconify the transient
windows when I uniconify the "parent".
