 It's kdecore, not KWin patch, to be exact.

 The code fails to dock if the app is started before the panel or if the panel 
restarts/crashes (not sure how likely is anything from this in GNOME). I also 
wonder how much it has been actually tested (for example, what would happen 
when running KDE with , which seems to support 
KDE docking, yet it's not KWin). Not that I personally care that much.
