I think I have seen something similar when starting ioquake3. At least
with ioquake3 I think the problem is that the software switches the
resolution. Dwm already checks for fullscreen apps with the current
screen size but might miss the apps that switch screen resolution.

I haven't looked into this. My workaround is that I start ioquake3 on a
new display (e.g. something like "startx `which ioquake3` -- :1").
