(well I am not talking about removing mappingState() ....... k, good to know it is public :P...)

Yes I am aware of those issues by not unmapping windows (from bug report here[1], and I don't think I am using a application that have those problems), but I don't think isMinimized() does it correctly right now.

However, apart from the expected result (breaks minimization: the client will continue to refresh its content) the minimized window is not shown as minimized in icontasks and pager.

However, this function threat all window that are not Iconic (WM_STATE != ICONIC) as not minimized, in contradiction to the "Extended window manager hints" which says, "Pagers and similar applications should use _NET_WM_STATE_HIDDEN instead of WM_STATE to decide whether to display a window in miniature representations of the windows on a desktop."
