What to do when you find a bug in Openbox:
Make sure you are using the latest version of whatever branch you are running, stable, testing, or development.
Find a way to reproduce the bug consistantly.

Please include this output in your bug report.
If you want to fix the bug yourself and submit a patch, please do, it will be much appreciated.
Submit a bug report to the bug database with the version of Openbox that you are using when the bug appears, detailing what the bug is, including the back-trace if appropriate, and describing how to reproduce it. If we cannot reproduce it, we probably cannot fix it! So please give clear instructions.
