we have time, there's a chance that after few months I'll narrow down
the cause and then you'll be able to reproduce.

thanks. For now I prefer to not restart, even though I know that
restarting should be now fine, except for tabs :) Also, it is
possible that this bug occurs only with higher sawfish uptime.

Also I still cannot compile, but that is another problem.
Tough to find time for all this here :)

I'll run this script in a day or two, and let it monitor window behavior.

those command seem to work. It produced a sensibly looking file,
I will compare it with xwininfo to check for other possible lost
