I always completely removepkg (Slackware) and/or make uninstall, before I install the new version.

Oh, I didn't know about --replace! However, it just killed my entire Openbox session and took me to my login manager (slim). I tried the keybinds again but it still didn't log anything. I redirect stdout and stderr to a temporary file in /tmp, and the file was blank.

I don't have a ~/.xsession-errors.

Anyway, I think I would use xdotools for this feature, as it can probably do it and more, and I'm already using it to do double-clicks for me :)
