wmii handled this and the dudes of fvwm2 fame handled it in a very
hackish way that did it correctly for all spawned apps though. (Not
just this pre-defined stuff that wmii did)

But that certainly annoys me too. It would be more than great if this
could be handled smart. (I wouldn't know how though.)

after I upgraded to xmonad-0.5 today I'm more than happy. I was a bit
reluctant because almost every update caused me to (partly) rewrite my
config, which wasn't the most fun thing I did at the computer.
(Having access to reddit, you see...)

I would second the statusbar stuff... But rob2| is certainly
progressing in a direction that I think is very acceptable for the
xmonad project. :-)

Certainly thanks to you guys for this project.
