*amused* You are familiar with the term "roster"?

Recent Skype is doing something rather evil --- the EWMH versions of those
entries don't agree with the ICCCM versions, and this confuses xmonad (not
to mention people trying to configure xmonad...).  Can you provide a full
xprop output for the roster window so we can see exactly how this one is
messing things up (the last one I looked at had the class okay but name and
title were confused and inconsistent; I think there's been another update
since then).
