I think this is a bug in scrot. Every X utility worth its salt runs a
loop attempting to bind the keyboard a number of times (see dmenu, but
there are many others), since the resource *can* be temporarily
unavailable. Scrot does not.

This may be a bug in dwm, if you try looping and it fails, but I doubt it.
