The Dock should, at some point, be made omnipresent so that it will exist on
all workspaces (either in WindowMaker or another WM).  I am having a similar
problem with InnerSpace (a BackSpace clone).

I don't want to hack something in using X11 code, but there is currently no
way, it seems, to tell the backend to make a window omnipresent.

Later, GJC
