Let me throw this in:

> dmenu_run & sleep 1; slock

The screen goes black for a moment, but then slock disappears (without
dying) and you can use the computer again.

This is a security hole. For example, my laptop executes slock when I
close the lid. If I close the lid while dmenu is running, slock will
have no effect.
