Have apps on root window or disable window decoration?

Yes.  I'm quite positive.  I tried once again just now.  This
time I used "plan" (an old calendar program for X Window).
I "detected" the window and checked the "Use window class (whole
application)" and pressed "OK".  I visited the "Preferences" tab,
checked the checkbox for "Skip Task Bar", and selected "Force"
of the combobox on the right.  I pressed "OK", "Apply", and "OK".
I still see the "plan" in my task bar.  I repeated this cycle and
saw no change.

Is it possible that I'm using an old version of KDE?
I'm using the testing distribution of Debian GNU/Linux.
KDE consists of many Debian packages, so I don't know which
represents the version of KDE as a whole.  The package named
"kde" says "Version: 5:45", whatever it means.
(I've never seen a colon in a version number!)
