xfwm4 oddness

amusingly, this is somewhat work-related.  i'm creating a login dialog 
that lives in a library that can be called by whatever random GUI app 
feels like calling it (so it has a NULL parent).  i'm getting weird 
behaviour.  when the dialog is mapped and initially focused, it looks 
normal.  it has all the buttons i'd expect - menu, stick, shade, 
minimise, close (i've set resizable to FALSE, so no maximise).  as soon 
as the window loses focus, however, the sticky and minimise buttons 
disappear, and the dialog becomes sticky.  for comparison, metacity 
(2.6.2) handles the window properly.

i've played around with dialog creation, and here's what i have 
regarding xprop and whatnot:
i don't think i'm doing anything wrong, but, being the king of b0rk, 
that's certainly a possibility.
