New issue 481 by Mike.Lim... at gmail.com: UrgencyHook doesn't work for Qt  

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Use Qt application which uses QApplication::alert to mark application  
as "urgent", for example Skype or qutIM

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
UrgencyHook should be executed, but actually nothing happened.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad && xmonad-contrib 0.9.2. The darcs version is also affected. OS -  
Gentoo Linux.

As I understand the root cause of the problem is that  
_NET_WM_STATE_DEMANDS_ATTENTION flag is not handled properly, but Qt uses  
it internally.
