[Bug 830637] Re: Not all windows can be minimised directly


"Some windows request not to be minimized as per the extended window
manager hints. This is not a bug."

This is was the kind of thing I was expecting; I knew it was an intended

So in this case, what I'm asking is that there should an /option/ to
ignore 'disable minimise' requests from windows such as dialogs.

Bug #832301 will also need to be solved in order to prevent the dialog
that has just been minimised from immediately popping up again.

"You have to minimize it's ancestor (eg parent window)"

I'm aware that this can be done using the mouse, but seriously, try
doing that with the keyboard! Alt-Tab, Alt-F9 doesn't work because the
Alt-Tab fails to select the parent due to bug #832301.

"This is somewhat different, the default show desktop method is to..."

I have not experienced /any/ issue with show desktop. I was merely making a point that a restriction has been imposed. I now understand that this restriction is the 'disable minimise' request defined in the extended window
manager hints you tell me about.

Oh BTW, what is the real name for the 'disable minimise' request?
