Please, can you check if the latest version I just uploaded,
i.e. 1:20090502.git482df740-1, still has the same bug? I cannot
reproduce it with 1:20080721-2 on a KVM virtual machine.

If StumpWM is still working, you should be able to use stumpish (the
StumpWM Interactive SHell), thus go to a console window, login and:
$ DISPLAY=:0.0 stumpish
Welcome to the STUMPwm Interactive SHell.
Type commands for a list of commands.
If the 'version' command above returns something, then StumpWM is still
active, otherwise it has crashed.

This is how X11 works:
- if your ~/.xsession (or the Display Manager you use) starts the WM as
the first process in X11, then if this process crashes your session
will exit as well
- however, if you have started the WM from an already running X11
session, then every program already running when the WM crashes is
still available, thus the mouse still works

Depending how you start StumpWM (see above), it logs to
~/.xsession-errors (first case) or to stdout (second case): if StumpWM
crashes, the log should contain the reason.
