Hm, right, for some reason I was thinking window managers get  
privileged behavior (it is certainly possible for windows to outlive  
their creators, windows and pixmaps are actually shared resources as  
far as the server is concerned, pixmap leaks are far from unknown,  
window leaks rarely occur but have been seen occasionally).
