It just happened to me again so I've upgraded to the latest
X11/Xmonad. We'll see what happens.

I was in a terminal window this time, so I tried a few more things to
see what would happen.

- opening a new terminal had no effect. The program launched (at
least, my CPU usage spiked) but no new window appeared. I ctrl-c'ed
and my prompt re-appeared in the current window.
- the mouse pointer still changes shape as it moves across different
windows, and I can still highlight by click-dragging in other terminal
windows. Can't move focus to them though.
