Well, there are too many applications that do it for it to be the app (I
already found top, mc, mutt, irssi and vim).

I have gentoo too, tried with the same use flags. Still getting this
behaviour. But I noticed it happens more often when the system is under
load, it could be some race condition. Does X guarantee event delivery
in order?

Is there any way to see what xmonad sends to the windows? Or, what a
given window gets for events?

Thank you

Anything is possible, unless it's not.
