Openbox <-> Gnome window-list applet bug

   I noticed that here at work (FC3) and also at home (FC4) with ob 3.3rc2 th 
Gnome window list doesn't get updated when windows change state (e.g., shaded).

   If I shade a window (mouse roller over title), windowlist doesn't register 
[puts '='s around window title] until I change desktops and come back (roller 
over desktop).

   Iconisation (minimise) does show up immediately.  This likely to be an ob 
or windowlist bug?

   I've also proviously noticed something that may be related;  I use 
'alltray' with mozilla's sunbird calendar to keep it in the “panel 
notification area” when closed.  When I click the alltray icon to open sunbird 
[open, not start], it appears in the windowlist OK, but the click that closes 
it [back to the pna] does so, with the windowlist still showing it, until I 
again move off the desktop and back.
