Yeah, i could add this line of code, but anyone dare to explain me why i
need to add this _only_ for XFWM4?

Seriously your project _does_ claim high standards compliance and holds this
up as one of it's major points/benefits/whatever the right for this is
(sorry non native english speaker here) and please don't come with this "I
just work on it in my free time" statement.

So, given the both above statements, anyone care to explain me because of
which spec (or perhaps brokenness, after all ?) of XFWM4  i need to add
gtk_widget_show() explicity just for XFWM4

Just btw, if you look at the code of gtk_window_present() in the gtk+ source
tree, it does already call _show() so what is the point here anyway ?

I'm riding so much on a minor issue because you boast all the time with
standards complicance, yet now you suggest me to use a workaround; and if
it's not a workaround then i'd seriously like to know by which spec this
behaviour  is defined, and different from all other WMs (and also implying
that all other WMs are broken or at least not fully compliant).

Anyone? (again)
