I did manage to get it resolved, it seems it was a problem with fvwm2

I switched to ratpoison and that seems to work fine

'apt-get install ratpoison' should work if you have debian, then its 
just a matter of altering your .xinitrc to suit. I also had some success 
by running X with no wm at all after following the guide at 

But after i did that i had some problems with buttons not highlighting 
and such, so i switched to ratpoison, which seems to work better.

Ive cc'ed this to the list so that people searching through the list 
archive can find the solution i used as well
