And explicitly viewing tag 1 instead of adding tag 2 to the view makes
the unuseable firefox window disappear? If so I'm seeing the same
problem with gkrellm which I'm running floating and tagged with the
first tag: when e.g. a network interface is created or destroyed
(causing gkrellm to draw a new monitor), gkrellm pops up on the view,
even if I'm not viewing the first tag at all.

I haven't been able to track down the problem so far.
