Yes, it goes away! Thanks for the hint! Anyway, it was nice to test Qemu
with good old twm and surprisingly I even found that when I use it, Qemu
is ok and correctly grabs/ungrabs. So the problem seems to be somewhere
between Qemu and WindowMaker which I'm using. On the other hand, since I
was also using it in the 0.5.5 time, I'm sure Qemu supported it well that
time. On the other hand I can not guarantee that that time WindowMaker and
todays are still the same, since I'm using Debian stable and from time to
time I update/upgrade it to get all security fixes and I don't remember if
WindowMaker was/was not upgraded during this time period.

Anyway thanks for your help!
