Would be interesting how wmii-current from hg tip performs without your hack,
because it is using libixp(2) and the ugly spawning events on
client-update have gone. The problem with frequently changing
titles applications is, that for each title update in wmii-2.5.x
around 3 processes are forked (two of them open old-style IXP connections).
Thus this is a bad bad bottleneck. Thus I recommend trying hg
tip if the issue is handled better by now.

You can have a look at old wmiirc for 'clientupdate' and remove
all the commands which are executed if the client's title
