[xmonad] doShift vs mplayer

Hi all,

I wasn't able to find a solution to this, though it's possible I
missed some previous discussion.  If my manageHook contains "title =?
"MPlayer" --> doShift wkM" then, as expected, MPlayer's windows get
sent to wkM.  However, unless wkM is currently on screen, mplayer does
not begin playing. If I bring wkM on screen, it starts, and when I
bring something else onscreen instead, mplayer continues to play.
FWIW, This is a pretty stock Debian testing machine.

Suggestions?  Thanks in advance.
