Re: metacity2.14.5 under etch: keyboard lockup when opening a window

I use gnome+metacity in etch.
I am experiencing random lockups of the display since a few hours.
Opening a window seems to trigger this. So far it has happened when
launching gvim, iceweasel and gnome-terminal (not everytime). What
happens in such cases is that the newly opened window is left without
the window-manger's borders. Keyboard locks up. Mouse responds to
motion, but mouse-clicks do not work. I am able to ssh from a remote
machine and kill metacity which seems to bring everything back to normal.
Upgrading metacity to 2.18.5 (testing) appears to have fixed the
problem. There has not been any lockup since then.
I never managed to figure out what went wrong though.
There does not seem to be any bug filed against metacity at
bugs.debian.org, so I am not sure if it related to metacity.
The only change I have made to the system today is to upgrade icedove to
the testing release and install qemu.
Has anybody experienced a similar problem? Is there something I might
have done that is causing this?
