Thing is that both old and new (extended wm-specs) Gnome compatibility
include hints to mark windows as skipwinlist, so that Gnome/KDE can
understand it. It was only partially supported in  1.8, but in 1.9
its an integral part of the AfterStep. So in future both AS and Gnome and
should show exactly same window list.
