Another idea which could be related to it? Maybe this Java
toolkit stuff has trouble if the client window border is set to
1px? That might also be an interesting check, because it might
be that those apps work fine without a WM, because in such a
situation no border is set (however, usually any WM sets the
border of client windows at least to 0).
