that i know; it allows me to send the window to one, more, or all activities after it's been opened. but i find this quite a botheration, since there are several windows i like to have on all activities, like messengers, konsole, ktorrent, etc. every time i open one of these i have to set that manually. i was hoping for a way to do that via script, or in the app.'s config file.

nothing of that sort happened here -- or if it did, i didn't notice.
