The difference seems to be, that dwm calls setlocale(LC_CTYPE,""); while
in dvtm it is setlocale(LC_ALL,"") so maybe dvtm should be changed

You could use the -m command line option which sets the modifier at
runtime. So for example dvtm -m ^w will set it to CTRL+w. But i agree
that there should also be the possibility to send CTRL+g.

What kind of things would you like to do with the mouse? The only thing
i can think of right now is selecting a window and probably closing it
with (right click). I don't think resizing / moving should be done with
the mouse.

There seems to be some kind of support, don't know how portable it is
