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.
