Indeed, so I added a match on 'className' too:

    , resource  =? "empathy"                     --> doF (W.shift "1:im")
    , className =? "Empathy"                     --> doF (W.shift "1:im")

with this in my xmonad.hs I got the strangest behaviour ever, it actually
managed to move *another* window to the workspace "1:im".  In any case,
matching on either 'resource' or 'className' (not both) works equally badly.

I guess this is empathy's fault, since the placement works with every other
application I use.
