This must be related to unclutters own timeouts, dwm drops all
enternotify-events it produced on its own in arrange().
Unclutter also grabs for these events and due to its
reappearance handling of the cursor it produces an enternotify
event dwm cannot drop, because dwm hasn't produced this event.
Maybe unclutter has an implementation flaw if those enternotify
events aren't declared as NotifyGrab events...
However, I see no solution despite of not using unclutter or
living with this annoyance ;)
