Patch submitted via an enhancement bug in bugzilla (see:
https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6368 ). Lukasz, feel free to
try it out ;) I threw in setting to _DOCK as well, as that seems to work
too. Setting _OVERRIDE, unfortunately, looks like it requires getting
openbox to re-traverse the MapRequest handling codepath (at least
partially) and I haven't found a good, clean way to do it yet; at least
without the patchset growing substantially, which would make it difficult
to review.
