Minimized is different than hidden.

You can minimize a window (gtk_window_iconify, so it is actually iconify)
and it is still available and can be seen as an icon with tools that show
those (like taskbar or pager etc).

You can also hide a widget (gtk_widget_hide) and it really vanishes and
is truely invisible (and does not appear in taskbar and pager etc).
