Can confirm that the lockup happens even if the glxgears window is not moving.

Interestingly - gnome + metacity, no problems! glxgears runs for the minutes I
care to let it before getting bored, can drag the window all around.

gnome + compiz gets me the same as bug #18097 : glxgears runs till moving the
window around a while, when it hangs up (after leaving snapshots of itself in
the places where I stop window moving and let things redraw), at which point X
locks, but the mouse and networking do not. So I can reproduce that bug, but
it is different.

So: Windowmaker is tickling some nasty X bug, a window manager (no matter how
archaic) shouldn't be able to completely brick a machine. The window manager
is running as a normal user, not root, so shouldn't be able to touch sensitive
memory, right?
