Here is a slightly more useful version of the same bug report.

While running dwm, starting feh from st and going to full-screen has the
following behaviour:
1) feh prints an error message about the window manager not handling WMHints:
feh WARNING: Window Manager does not support MWM hints. To get a borderless
window I have to bypass your wm.
2) the feh window does not get keyboard focus

The behaviour is not reliably reproducible on st 0.3, it sometimes happens.
In particular, the behaviour seem to disappear once feh has been started from
a different terminal emulator (tested with urxvt) or application launcher
(tested with dmenu).

The error has nothing to do with ranger. It seems to live somewhere between
dwm, st, and feh.
