Indeed there is a bug.
I did a simple test :
urxvt -name icq
--> xprop says WM_CLASS(STRING) = "icq", "URxvt"
--> xmonad puts the window matching URxvt pattern , not icq
xterm -class icq
--> xprop says WM_CLASS(STRING) = "xterm", "icq"
--> the window is placed in my icq workspace. Again xmonad seems to take only
the second class string to match
So for now you can probably use xterm...
