[dev] [bug] locked mouse pointer

I have a weird bug and I'm not sure how to find the culprit.
I'm using dwm and from time to time my mouse pointer gets locked.
Highlighting text on st doesn't work, right-clicking on firefox
doesn't work, left-click dragging on pdf-reader doesn't work, slock
errors, windows don't get focused and other clumsy things. When I
restart X the problem is solved, but it soon happens again.
I'm very lost as what's the cause of this.
I tried logging dwm's stderr, but found nothing relevant there.
The only clue I have is that when I try to run slock while the bug is
happening, I get this message --- slock: unable to grab mouse pointer
for screen 0
Who could be the culprit here? dwm? xorg? driver?
Can anyone think of a way to debug this?
Thanks a lot.
