In that case, the problem is either with wmiir, the 9P connection
itself, or wmiirc. The best thing to do is launch wmiirc from a
terminal as ‘sh -x wmiirc’. You'll probably want to ‘wmiir
rm /rbar/status’, as well. Then run ‘wmiir xwrite /client/sel/ctl kill’
and see what output you get from wmiirc when you try key pressing your
accelerator keys. Probably best to just post the output here, actually.
It might be a good idea to find wmiirc's subprocesses with ‘psid -p’,
