On the whole, I'm happy with icewm, although I do occasionally see some
funkiness (XMMS randomly taking on new window attributes, occasional
freeze, etc.)

I also liked WindowMaker last time I tried it a few years ago, but I
don't know how lightweight it is.

If you want crazy-lightweight, there's sawmill.  Haven't played with it
much, though.
