Xpra: Ticket #44: right-click freezes window display

I've got a xchat window; a right-click on a URL should popup a menu, but only gives an empty white rectangle, and the window is not refreshed anymore.

XPra=>refresh doesn't help; but clicking on the button location changes the title, and I can send my input to IRC.

using strace on the server gave me this: (sadly not in any logfile!) - please read with caution, might have garbled something.

sorry about that, transient windows were causing an error in one of the loops that should never exit... causing the whole thing to stall

temporary fix in r287, will make a better fix later

r287 make that better ... right click now works. Thank you for the quick fix!
