Right now I'm using newsbeuter which is on tag 1. Now, if luakit isn't open already, I press 'o' and luakit opens on tag 2. The bar indicates that there's a new client on tag 2. Now, if I open another article hitting 'o' in newsbeuter, the bar shows the urgent hint (with reversed colors) just for the blink of an eye. So luakit sends this urgency signal, but dwm doesn't receive it. But if I go to tag 2, so I see luakit for the first time and go back to tag 1 to open another article via newsbeuter, then the urgent hint works.

Hmm, the urgency flag is cleared on focus. I think this must be a luakit bug.
