Exactly. And one of these programs sometimes (cron? yum?)
sets/resets/overrides something.

Similarly: Sometimes I find that my Xdefaults (yes, I'm old
fashioned) have been reset so I need to load them again.

This what I expects that happens.

I'm afraid it's not a bug, but defined though (for us) unwanted behaviour.

The problem remains to find out what tool is resetting or stealing things.

Right now I have a root window that doesn't any longer respond to mouse
clicks. There must be a way to find out who is stealing the events...
