Blamelist\015\012\015\012{{>toc}}\015\012\015\012This is just an unofficial and incomplete list of clients, that either have an odd or expect a certain non-default behaviour. \015\012\015\012_If you are a developer of a named project and feel responsible for it, feel free to contact me either via mail or in #subtle on freenode._\015\012\015\012h2. Logisim\015\012\015\012Logisim opens a splash screen and expects, that it gets mapped immediately, otherwise it just freezes. Also it just unmaps the splash screen without destroying it\015\012\015\012h2. GVim\015\012\015\012GVim sends continuously configure requests, when the window manager applies sizes hints in such a request. This effectively shrinks the window to its min size. Also some dialog windows like the screenshot dialog don't follow the project defaults for window names/roles.\015\012\015\012h2. Picard\015\012\015\012Picard just unmaps its toplevel window on menu exit and destroys it on rare occasions only.\015\012\015\012h2. MPlayer\015\012\015\012MPlayer doesn't react on _NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN when set by the window manager, therefore it doesn't resize the internal movie window and the aspect ratio is broken.\015\012\015\012h2. GIMP\015\012\015\012GIMP Expects that the splash is mapped immediately, otherwise it waits until the window manager finally maps it.\015\012\015\012h2. Mail-notification\015\012\015\012Mail-notification hides its tray icon and only maps it on a certain events.\015\012\015\012h2. Krusader\015\012\015\012Krusader opens dialog windows non-transient with the _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_NORMAL window type.\015\012\015\012h2. Flash\015\012\015\012Flash windows usually have a bogus WM_NAME/WM_CLASS, that doesn't match the launching browser. To make things even worse, this differs between each browser. (see FAQ#20)
