I haven't got any clue, but I asked one of my professors and he said
he mostly saw this problem with Java Swing apps. But he also didn't
know where particularly the problem originates.

And by the way, I am a huge fool. `$ man dwm` has a nice entry at the
very last. I should've given it a read before asking for help. Will
remember to do that next time.
