I think this would be a nice feature.  In fact, shaded windows should
probably have similar options as icons: Sticky, Stubborn, etc.  I wasn't
aware that it was a bug with the old version of AS, and I used it very
often thinking it was a great feature :-).  It was convenient for moving
windows around the virtual desktop. I simply shaded the window, positioned
myself somewhere else and unshaded.  I haven't looked at the AS code, but
I would *assume* that it shouldn't be too hard to do since the icon
options code can be mimicked.
