I don't have any comments on the focus problems, but I find that openoffice
actually ignores having isfloating set to false in my rules. I'm guessing that
its insistence on not tiling is a side-effect of how manage() handles windows
initialized with fullscreen dimensions: by making them floating, no-border
clients AFTER calling applyrules(). I just deal with this by using
MODKEY+shift+space to toggle isfloating on the client.
