i think this is a nice feature but i prefer it activable by the user.
a workaround for this thing may be to make user choice when to group the 
item of the taskbar adding a mcs plugin option, but this require a rewrite 
of netk_tasklist code 'cause it autogroup when boxes skrink to 
We could also add an option to make users choose between AUTO group, ALWAYS 
group and NO group at all. It seems quite simple and not require any 
rewrite in the libs.

See you!
