Somehow I'm thinking R is waiting until some negotiation is complete, that
xmonad thinks is already complete.  I'm curious as to whether it relies on
libX11/xcb/whatever toolkit it's using handling ConfigureRequest or tries
to do so itself; that's the most obvious difference between the various
cases *and* where xmonad is likely to differ from other window managers.

I'd be curious as to whether any problems have been reported with R in
other nonreparenting or tiling window managers.  (Note, the two are not the
same thing.)
