I highly doubt it. After all, I see it or related issues every once
in a while, and I haven't run xdm since last millennium.
And for that matter, the vtwm guys also report having apparently
similar troubles. I think we can pretty well say it's not any sort of
"X environment" issue, nor (strictly speaking) a window manager bug;
it's something wacky and possibly new the application is doing.
Now, it may be something we can work around in the WM. It's still on
my list to look at, but that list never seems to shorten. And I
haven't come up with a reliable way to trigger it either, which makes
it pretty near impossible.
 Now, does that means something Firefox is doing? Or something GTK
is doing? I see issues around Evince more often than FF, which
leads me to squint suspiciously at the latter, but who knows.
