   the property of the shaded window is still changed to IconicState. u can
 see that when u restart AS, all shaded windows are iconified. this is a
 known bug, but hasn't been fixed yet.
   the shaded windows followed one only because there was bug in AS. i think
 that option "StickyIcons" shouldn't hold for shaded windows and possibly new
 option "StickyShadedWindows" or similar should be created so ppl won't
 have to make each shaded window sticky.

    ideas? comments?
