Why don't you start dwm somewhere as "dwm &" in your .xinitrc/whatever
and use xterm as the "last resort" application to keep the X server running?

dwm &

I was running for a long time for this - you just kill dwm (from xterm or
otherwise) and then I do whatever I want from the xterm (launch dwm again).
I used this mode to hack .h files a lot. The only downside is that you
have all the windows again on the screen.
