Heyho Andreas,

I was not aware of that issue. The man page of unclutter says for the `-grab`
option "This often doesn't interoperate too well with some window managers" so
it might actually be not slocks fault. Since this does not seem to be a critical
issue, I will dig deeper into this when I can spare the appropriate amount of
time. Any further information or even patches are welcome.
