I reproduced the problem with branch-ruby-ixp + Ruby-IXP r70 +
wmii-3.1 + wmii-3.1_libixp_overload_fix.patch.

wmiirc would freeze when an IXP::Client was reused in a child process; I fixed
it by reopening the connection after a fork().

I have just pushed a couple patches to ruby-wmii (/branch-ruby-ixp) to
* sync against Ruby-IXP's svn (r70)
* fix the retagging/freezing bug

Let's see how stable it is :) (and if any events are lost in practice).
