OK, this was fixed in the git repo since 24c831b.

Do you still experience this problem?
If so, could you please report a gdb backtrace?

- configure ratpoison with debug enabled
$ make clean ; ./configure --enable-debug && make

- allow core files to hit the disk. In your X startup file,
change ''ratpoison'' to ''ulimit -c unlimited; ratpoison''

- when ratpoison crashes, fire gdb and get a backtrace:
$ gdb /path/to/ratpoison core
$ # type 'bt'

I can't reproduce it on a single head setup and I don't
have a second screen at hand.

Using "C-t x" to switch the windows between the frames results in a crash.
Usually after switching the second time, but also crashed when using "C-t F" afterwards.

Might be worth a mention that i am using xrandr / dualscreen setup on an acer aspire one netbook.

Corresponding output from dmesg:
[17705.683212] ratpoison[13511]: segfault at 14 ip 08062679 sp bfd1e1a0 error 4 in ratpoison[8048000+1f000]

ratpoison-version is 1.4.5

Let me know if you need additional information, i sort of seldom make bugreports.
