Hi Gabriel,
You might have a look at #this has
been resolved by the new fluxbox for dapper

The 0.9.14 version of Fluxbox fixes a bug that floods the font server.
With earlier versions the workaround was to compile it with 

./configure --disable-xmb

But this is isn't necessary with the 0.9.14 version. Dapper will ship with
0.9.14 apparently - but compiling it isn't difficult. The ubuntuforums
thread above gives my walk through (it' s actually the mailing list thread)

If this is your problem, that should fix it. You may want to read the
whole thread, as I give a few other tips in it - you might already know
most of them if you are a fluxbox user though.

HTH, and all that...
