very odd, random window dumps

This is weird...

Running small Python scripts, now and again a window dump is
created, and saved as the module name without the extension.
This happens on Linux. The dumped file is a PostScript file with
the image of one Window that was active at the moment
(completely unrelated to the Python application), and has a
header comment that says it was created by ImageMagick. Magic,
indeed. The file has the somewhat unusual access bits
-rwxr--r--, but normal user and group.
