[xmonad] Minor problem with fullscreen games and XMonad.Layout.NoBorders

I have the following layout hook, for getting things working with
gnome-panel and so that fullscreen games don't get assigned a border:

layoutHook = smartBorders $ ewmhDesktopsLayout $ avoidStruts $
layoutHook defaultConfig

Then I have the following in my manage hook:

title     =? "Brood War"      --> doFloat

This mostly works, my fullscreen games are fullscreen as they should
be and there is no border. UNLESS, I am on a workspace where no other
windows are open. Then the border still appears. So to play my game, I
open an empty terminal, then launch it. That way there are no borders.
But if the game is the only window, the border is still there. Anyway
to fix that and/or is this a bug?
