This sound like a client side window manager issue, and not an xpra issue.

As above.

Looking at the changelog from 0.13.4 to 0.13.5, there is nothing at all
in there that should be able to cause the problems you report.
So I suspect that the problem comes from somewhere else and that
downgrading back down may not help, did you do any other updates today?

Maybe running the client with "-d window" will tell us something useful.
