[dwm] konqueror and what-to-do-with-file dialog

Hi all,

in konqueror, when clicking on a link to a file which isn't opened
within konqueror itself by default, a temporary window pops up asking
what to do with the file. Unfortunately, this window is not floating
but is put in the main area whilst konqueror is shifted to the stacking
area, which is really annoying.

To me it looks like the window sets the TRANSIENT_FOR hint. Or is this an
EWMH hint? Who is to blame: KDE developers or dwm?

Here's some of xprop's output:

WM_CLIENT_LEADER(WINDOW): window id # 0x1200002
WM_WINDOW_ROLE(STRING) = "questionYesNoCancel"
_MOTIF_WM_HINTS(_MOTIF_WM_HINTS) = 0x4, 0x0, 0x1, 0x3, 0x0
WM_NAME(STRING) = "gotmor.googlepages.com - Konqueror"
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "konqueror", "Konqueror"
                Client accepts input or input focus: True
                Initial state is Normal State.
