Found it. It was a not-always-initialized variable in my own enhancements.
Sorry, for bothering anyone. I guess (rather hope) that was the last serious
bug in my new code. A patch against wmx-6 is attached.

Chris would you please consider putting these changes in the cvs.
Changes include:
- complete rewrite of the multihead code, now also xinerama aware
- new ./configure options
- new runtime options right:menu which brings up a menu by pressing
  right mouse button on border allowing you to (un)maximize, (un)stick,
  lower, hide and close the window
- fixes for clean gcc3 compile
- colors selectable via options symlink (forgot that one almost)
  keywords are: tabbg, tabfg, menubg, menufg and framebg
  arguments are color names found in /usr/lib/X11/rgb.txt
  should other colors (channel number and borders) also be configurable?
  can anyone come up with an intuitive and short naming scheme?
