I see these symptoms at work sometimes. I think it's connected with AFS
in my case; it happens when I've locked my screen and left for the day,
and xscreensaver doesn't get me fresh AFS tokens when it logs me back in
in the morning. Once I get to a terminal and run aklog, all is well.

I'm also running Debian and using Debian packages for wmii, FWIW.

BTW, I like your sig.
