since i started to use dwm 4.7 from time to time, i am having big problems
with my gnome desktop.
After about 1 - 2 minutes of usage (gnome ), freshly started apps loose
their window boarder and are not selectable
(not in focus und unable to put into focus). Applications minimized in the
gnome panel can't be opened again,
and nothing is klickable on the desktop. Restarting metacity and gnome-panel
from tty1 works,
but you have to do it every time this happens and it happens quiet often.

At first i was usure if dwm is the cause for this problem, but after
experiencing the same problems
on 2 diffrent manchines with 2 driffrent distributions (Ubuntu 9.04, Debian
lenny) ...

I already tried to reseted gnome with this line (not from gnome of course,
so gnome can't save anything)

rm -rf .config .gconf .gconfd .gnome .gnome_private .gnome2 .gnome2_private
.local .metacity .nautilus .thumbnails
.fonts.cache-1 .fonts.conf .gtk-bookmarks .gtkrc.mine .gtkrc-1.2-gnome2
.gtkrc-2.0 .recently-used .xscreensaver .gtk_qt_engine_rc .gtkrc

But the problem still remains ...

Does anyone of you have experienced something similar?

Best regards,
