i3 bar keep disappearing, I observed it usually happens when I have workspace with lot tiles and I use my mouse to switch between workspaces. Doesn't happen with I have few windows.
the bar shouldn't disappear
whenever I create a workspace with lot of windows (tiles) and try to switch between workspaces using the mouse. I even replaced the config file by the sample one shipped with i3 and repeated the same thing and it crashed. I tried to disable the i3status and just keep the bar with the workspace numbers and repeated the creation a workspace with lot of tiles and switch using the mouse, and the bar crashed.

That workaround doesn't work for me:
$ sudo sysctl net.local.stream.sendspace=106496 sysctl: cannot stat /proc/sys/net/local/stream/sendspace: No such file or directory
Apparently nothing under
$ sudo sysctl net.local sysctl: cannot stat /proc/sys/net/local: No such file or directory
Is there another workaround, or do I have to wait until the fix lands in a release?
Are you using freeBSD?
