I use the following .ratpoisonrc to set the windows key as the escape key:

This only works sometimes.  Usually I have to call "C-t escape F30"
after ratpoison comes up to get the effect that I want.  I tried putting
"sleep 1" between the two calls, but this didn't fix the problem.

The problem here is that both the xmodmap and sleep commands are being
exec'd so run in parallel to ratpoison. I presume the following would

In ratpoisonrc:
exec crazyscript.sh

in crazyscript.sh

xmodmap -e "keycode 115 = F30"
ratpoison -c "escape F30"

you might even be able to do exec xmodmap -e "keycode 115 = F30" &&
ratpoison -c "escape F30" in ratpoisonrc but I'm not sure.
