I didn't say he did. ;P

Now seriously: as I wrote in another mail: the actual window manager
practically never is the cause for latency problems. Running huge
applications while having too little memory however can lead to xruns.
But those huge applications for sure aren't the window managers, so
just switching to another WM won't help.
