I have compiled a new windowmaker-0.91.0 with the new patch-net_wm_icon
file, and the problem still remains.

I can howewer confirm, the problem is exactly as you described it:
applications do not freeze, but they do not receive keyboard and mouse

I have configured a key shortcut to maximize the current window with
wmpref. File/Open Location still reliably "freezed" konqueror as described
in the PR. I then activated the shortcut and the Open dialog appeared
fullscreen. I could then close it and continue to interact with konqueror

Thanks for your insight, now I know this is a real bug :)
