New issue 515 by bmathiasen: XMonad freezes occasionally when using  
Gridselect (XMonadContrib)

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Toggling Gridselect (goToSelected/gridselectWorkspace)
2. Attempt to move to another window or workspace.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expected output: Normal 2D grid of windows/workspaces, that I can swap to  
using the keyboard.

What I see: The 2D grid opens, but any subsequent input from the keyboard  
will occasionally cause XMonad to freeze; windows and workspaces will  
become unresponsive. It is possible to go to another tty to kill xmonad,  
after which a WM can be launched on the appropriate display.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
XMonad version 0.10 (built from source, package manager, and Cabal) on the  
following OS's:
- LinuxMint (DebianTesting edition) using XFCE4.
- Xubuntu (11.10 and 12.04).
- Ubuntu (12.04).

All setups tried on two separate laptops, Lenovo Thinkpad X220 and T400s.

Are you using an xmonad.hs?  Please attach it and the output of "xmonad
No output.

Please provide any additional information below.
My xmonad.hs uses custom functions for gridselecting windows and  
workspaces, but the same error occur with the default configuration.

Upon freeze, there is no relevant error logging output in  
/var/log/messages, ~/.Xsession-errors or ~/.xmonad/xmonad.errors.
