Please find attached the configuration file requested on IRC, from an
uptodate sid amd64 machine, where I'm able to reproduce the bug. A quick
diff (yeah for XML!) shows that only the following items are different:
ButtonLayout, SnapWidth, ThemeName, TitleFont, and WrapResistance.

For the (possibly) interested reader needing the path, here it comes:

Otherwise, that's mostly the same settings that I've got on my
non-that-uptodate sid powerpc machine. I strongly suspect the “Activate
focus stealing prevention” setting. ISTR I didn't use it during the last
two months on that amd64 box, and that after having turned it up some
days ago, I started to experience that strange gitk/xfwm4 behaviour.
