Thanks to Anselm, we figured out who to blame at least: the compiler.
This fixes it:

diff -r 050d521d66d8 -r c361034c5a1c dwm.c

                unfocus(selmon->sel, True);
                selmon = m;
- focus(wintoclient(ev->window));
+ focus((wintoclient(ev->window)));

But evidently that's odd.
gcc version 4.4.3 (Gentoo 4.4.3-r2 p1.2)

I use the default config.mk (without XINERAMA stuff) and config.h.

In any case, that fixes the bug and now openoffice and firefox behave.
