Mouse stops working fully after screen detaches in Fluxbox

I'm using Slackware 11 on 2 computers with Fluxbox as my window manager. If I open rxvt, start either a new screen or attach one in progress (screen -r) and then detach it, I will not be able to use any Fluxbox keybindings, access the right-click menu by right-clicking the root window, use the scroll wheel to change desktops, etc. The mouse wheel works when used over the toolbar, though. This problem also happens after using apps like emelfm and k3b, but it doesn't happen regularly enough for me to reproduce. I really don't know what can be causing this, but it has to be a Fluxbox problem, because I can still do ctrl+alt+backspace to kill xorg and startx again as an inconvenient fix for this problem. Any help provided is greatly appreciated. I've been reading about Fluxbox, linux mouse problems, screen, and searching for "detaching problem screen" and other search variations for so long, but to no avail. I hope someone knows about this. Thanks so much.
