firebird and xemacs locking up/crashing "in pairs"???

I have two separate problems. The one with the flickering windows also 
affects galeon. I cannot reproduce this on enlightenment. Still, since 
fluxbox also shows this behaviour, I don't think the problem is WindowMaker 
specific, but that there's a something fishy in firebird/galeon/mozilla, 
and this problem is only noticed in Wmaker & fluxbox.

The other problem, about firebird & xemacs crashing in pairs, I can only 
reproduce with firebird. This makes firebird unusable for me, so right now 
I use galeon instead. :(
