You spoil me :-D!
This is my xprop result on skype roster:

WM_CLASS = "skype", "Skype"
WM_NAME = "<USERNAME> - Skype™ (Beta)"
WM_WINDOW_ROLE:  not found.

on chat window:

ff0000 at regulus:~$ xprop -notype WM_CLASS WM_NAME WM_WINDOW_ROLE
WM_CLASS = "skype", "Skype"
WM_NAME = "<BUDDY_ALIAS> - Skype™ Chat"
WM_WINDOW_ROLE:  not found.

how can i handle them if role is empty? Is there some way to regexping
WM_NAME? :-|
