I'm sure Mauricio will resolve this soon. :-)

Good work. I reproduced the bug on my system, but only the
status-bar thread had frozen. As I suspected, this might be a
problem with Ruby-IXP not waking up the requester thread.

(In my case, the requester thread is the satus-bar thread, whereas
in ruby-wmii, the requester thread might be the wmiirc itself; thus,
the entire wmiirc freezes.)

Update your copy of Ruby-IXP to r68 from SVN, and try to reproduce
the bug again. It does not seem to occur for me anymore.
