[dwm] VIM windows get minimized after a focus change

I'm using dwm in tiling-mode, and have a bizarre issue with
VIM windows. (Clarification: when I say "vim window", I'm
referring to the windows described at ":help
windows-intro"). I have a vim window open which is itself
split into several vim windows. My winheight in vim is fully
maximized like this:

 :set wh?

When I change focus off of vim in dwm, and then return focus
back to vim -- it appears as if the vim winheight has gone
to "1" (the vim window has been minimized), though ":set
wh?" still shows "999". I have the issue with both "vim" and
"gvim" (I would post this to a *vim* mailing list, but I
only see the issue when using dwm.)

Does anyone have any ideas what might be going on?
