Indeed. cwm keeps a "menu window" around for menuing and for the resize
geometry drawable; cwm maps and unmaps this window as needed, as opposed to
creating and destroying each time. Right now tabbed sees the event when the
resize drawable maps, it adds it to the list of clients it manages, but since
the unmap notify event is not handled, tabbed tries to kill the menuwin when
cycling through managed clients when closing. This does not make cwm happy :)
