No, that version still crashes.  I "fixed" my version by checking the
return value of XGetClassHint.  I say "fixed" because even with that
change it crashed one time.  I have not been able to get it to repeat
though.  I noticed that there are lots of XGet--- calls that do not check
the return value for failure.  My guess is there is more than one area
where something similar is happening.

This was my fix:

clientInBorderlessList (Client * c)
  XClassHint *class_res;
  char *win_class_name;
  char *tok;
  char *buf;
  size_t strSize;
  int err;

#ifdef DEBUG
  printf ("entering clientInBorderlessList\n");

  class_res = xmalloc (sizeof (XClassHint));

  err = XGetClassHint (dpy, c->window, class_res);

  if (err && class_res->res_name)
    win_class_name = class_res->res_name;
      XFree (class_res);
      return False;
