I think the absolute position of a child window should generally be
absolute position of parent + relative position of child, but that did
not seem to hold here.

xwininfo -id <winid> shows the mapping state and override redirect
flag, among other things.  xprop -id <winid> WM_STATE shows the
WM_STATE property.  If it does not exist, the window is withdrawn,
which I would expect to be the case.

That should be the easy part, figuring out precisely what kind of a
mess the system is in.  The hard part is figuring out how it got
there, particularly if it only happens rarely.
