Opera, sawfish and xinerama window disappears on open new tab

I've trapped the error by xtracing sawfish but I can't find where it
 is happening. I have 2 xtraces of it happening that are around 1mb and
 an xtrace of exiting opera normally as a control. I can't find a
 meaningful difference between them.

 xtracing opera seems to fix the problem.

 The window is disappearing from the managed-windows list in the
 sawfish client but remaining in the xwininfo -root -tree -all output.

 user> (mapcar window-name (managed-windows ))
 ("/home/j/files/bin/xsysmon" "<j albert>:  /home/j" "pager"
 "<j albert>:  /home/j" "<j triton>:  /home/j" "<j albert>:  /home/j"
 "<j albert>:  /home/j" "reddit.com: what's new online! - Opera")
 user> (mapcar window-name (managed-windows ))
 ("/home/j/files/bin/xsysmon" "<j albert>:  /home/j" "pager"
 "<j albert>:  /home/j" "<j triton>:  /home/j" "<j albert>:  /home/j"
 "<j albert>:  /home/j")

 The two attachments are xwininfo -root -all -tree from when opera is
 running is ok and when it's crashed.

 I can send the xtraces to anyone individually or post them on a file
 server if someone wants to recommend one. I don't really have a good
 pub_html right now.
