I've changed it to wrap the text onto multiple lines... maybe that will

Is this useful? Do people have so many iconified windows they need to
spread them across multiple screens? It seems that that keeping them
'sticky', like the other pinboard icons, would be more useful so you can
move windows between viewports this way...?

Though, I don't use iconified windows often enough to know what's best.
