X error - private resource denied?

I'm having a play with a little app called Skippy. It's not exactly what I was chasing but it looks worthy of having a play around. However I compile it, copy the default rc file to my home dir but I get this error.
X Error of failed request:  BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)
  Major opcode of failed request:  33 (X_GrabKey)
  Serial number of failed request:  75
  Current serial number in output stream:  75
I get the same error with the standard one and skippy-xd. I'm guessing it's maybe just something wrong in my xorg.conf. Google revealed some other people having the same problem but no resolutions.

Any ideas on stuff to try would be great Thanks.

Okay, did some more research and it turns out that error simply means that my window manager (fluxbox) has already grabbed the key that skippy is trying to grab resulting in a conflict.
