Actually I tried to reproduce or to understand what you are
asking. But I don't understand what you ask anymore.

I have following rule in my setup:

{ "Firefox.*", "net", False }

Now, I look at "work" and "net" I see the firefox main window.
If I open the About window of firefox, it is tagged with "net"
as well, thus it appears in my view (because I look at "net" AND
"work"). If I don't look at "net" the window does not appear in
the "work" view, because it is not tagged with "work".

There is nothing wrong with this behavior. Do you expect
something different?
