The problem persists.
But: The only window, that makes xmonad hang, seems to be the terminal
window, where I killed metacity and started xmonad. As long, as I keep
it open, everything seems to be fine. I can open another terminal and
close it without a problem. But as soon, as I kill the switching
terminal, xmonad hangs. Other windows are having problems only after
When I start a session with xmonad from the beginning, in order to avoid
the terminal, xmonad hangs instantly.
xmonad.errors is empty and Xsession-errors has only some errors about
"atk-bridge-WARNING: AT_SPI_REGISTRY was not started at session
startup.", which I am having since long before I started using xmonad.
Nothing about xmonad.
