Class names almost always start with an uppercase letter; this is "always"
for Xt-based stuff like xclock. so your rule doesn't match.  Use "Xclock"
instead of "xclock".

(For historical reasons, WM_CLASS is not a list of classes, it is a list of
[appName, className].  Always use the second string reported by "xprop
WM_CLASS".  Or see the window properties script in xmonad-contrib's scripts
