This happen because os.execute is a blocking command. Awesome stops until
the command return. When the GTK window is created, it ask the window
manager to manage it. As Awesome is busy waiting for the command to finish,
everything freeze. It is usually called a "deadlock" because both process
are waiting for the other. Please use awful.util.spawn instead of
os.execute. rc.lua should never call blocking functions.
