in cwm (on current, amd64) runs fine.
So i bet a scrotwm bug.
Then again the mail contains at least 3 bugs being mentioned, this only
treats the first.
As for the third (warzone) the monitor timing is probably a warzone or X
bug, the rest of the failure could be the WM or the application just not
quitting and keeping the keyboard grabbed (that would be an application
bug). That can be tested using ssh and kill -9.
As a note, scotwm really needs it own mailing list, scrotwm bugs are not
really topical for misc.
She missed an invaluable opportunity to give him a look that you could
have poured on a waffle.
