Yes, it made firefox unusable for me without the patch and I rely on firefox :/. I've confirmed that current git source also fixes the problem for me, thanks!

Sorry for the delay, I wasn't aware that the issue was that annoying (I think I could not reproduce it when you first reported it). This was fixed in the git commit , my zeroing the event structure (and more important, setting its time member to CurrentTime).

Looks like a variable initialization got lost a while back in cmd_meta. I'm guessing stack protector usage is the difference between the working and non working version. The patch below makes it work and it looks like HEAD needs something similar.

However, recompiling 1.4.5 on my current system makes it not work again...

Under a fresh install of arch, ratpoison (1.4.6) meta seems to cause issues with firefox. As soon as I hit Ctl-t t to create a new tab, the right click context menu and anything else that pops up a new window (add new bookmarks, etc.) stops working. Downgrading to 1.4.5 makes it work again.

This might be somehow related to this issue with firefox vs. XIM:

This is on:
Linux localhost 3.10.6-2-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Aug 13 09:47:01 CEST 2013 x86_64 GNU/Linux
