Issue 125: Tabbed layout not working anymore

this requires a change in the way we handle messages. Basically, a 
layout modifier is
not allowed to call "focus w" (the function to place a window in 
focus), because that
modifies the stack the layout modifier is operating with. As I wrote here:
I do not really grasp the hows and whys, but I'm sure it's true.

I think this issue is the same of issue #111. (but I remember there 
should be a
similar issue, but I cannot find it presently).

it to 'tabbed'?

yes, you are right. But I didn't because of that linker issue. I 
thought that first
we must test the patch, and possibly understand if it breaks ghc-6.6.1 compatibility,
that would be quite an issue.
