I have some custom keybindings in my .i3/config which launch specific scripts. For example:

bindsym $mod+p exec /home/<user>/bin/ms-personal

Which launches urxvt with a specific -name option. For some reason, this binding does not take effect when I first launch i3; $mod+p has no effect. However, if I reload my i3 configuration using $mod+shift+C, $mod+p then works. Is this a known issue?
