First time I've seen this one. Anyone?
You're not trying to do this as root are you?
You might try a different wm (create/edit ~/.xinitrc and/or ~/.xsession
and comment out anything except the windowmanager of your choice). Try
something simple, like twm or fvwm or icewm. This will help determine if
it's an X problem or a wm problem or what.
