We do file icons, but we don't show iconised windows. However, I'm
rewriting the pinboard code at the moment, and I'm considering adding
(optional?) support for this, as it confuses newbies when their windows
disappear completely...

Also, sawfish does a rather unhelpful animation which appears to show
the window disappearing behind the panel, leading to much time spent
trying to kill the panel, then much more time spent trying to get it back
again ;-)
