I am not convinced. The resolution sounds like a work around inside of
fvwm but the bug is really in libX11.

True, it is ALSO a bug in fvwm. But this libX11 bug is still there and
caused by their incomplete and erroneous implementation of threaded

It introduced trouble in the past and since then, they did not address
the real bugs but did some cosmetic changes. And if I remember correct,
there are other software that is affected by this bug too. Not only
fvwm. (But I do not remember, which.)
