I do not have this issue, but had it using C-t as prefix key -- it's too
uncomfortable for me to use it all the time.

I'm using the Windows key as prefix key:

.stumpwmrc:
---------------------->%-------------------
(run-shell-command "xmodmap -e \"keycode 133 = F20\"")
(run-shell-command "xmodmap -e \"clear Mod4\"")
(set-prefix-key (kbd "F20"))
---------------------->%-------------------

Of course, xmodmap has to be installed, and the Win key you are using
has to has keycode 133.

Use xev to check the keycode if necessary.
