  In my case, I just spend some free time around Xfce, so don't blame
me.  I think most developers of Xfce, I'm not, do the same. They code
around Xfce in they free time.

  Also I didn't check your testcase, because Yves-Alexis did it... now
I tested it.  It didn't "present" the window after some seconds, it
just reappeared in the taskbar.  If you add gtk_widget_show (GTK_WIDGET
(window)) it works... but I know you will refuse this line of code...

  Enough said, all the rest could go wrong.  So, cool down.
