I tested some more and created the attached event traces. (At least) two
things I don't understand: On calling createnotify, the event itself has
override_redirect set to False, but wa.override_redirect returns True so
the event handler refuses to manage(..) the window.

Later, on maprequest the blob windows get managed, manage(..) is called,
but on the unmapnotify directly after that, they get unmanaged again. Is
this normal behaviour for an X application (it's at least one difference
between "Math.Main" and "Math.Blob.1/2")?
