Is it just wmii that freezes or is it everything? Does it happen
with other window managers? I don't think this is related to

Lisp has jokingly been called "the most intelligent way to misuse a

transmits the full flavor of liberation: it has assisted a number of
our most gifted fellow humans in thinking previously impossible
