This mail got unintentional to this list, so I didn't elaborate on my
settings: I use Mauricio's ruby-wmii[1], in it's experimental
ruby-ixp-branch[2]. Whereas before applying your
libixp_overload_fix.patch it ran stable but wmii broke, it's now the
other way round: wmii is stable, but wmiirc freezes. It can be easily
reproduced when I try to send a client to another view. The gets
retagged, but wmiirc is frozen and has to be restarted.
