I will have a look into it. It'll be required that these windows are
set to floating, otherwise dwm will always override to "behind
floating windows" if these windows are managed/tiled by default. Afaik
configurenotify does not handle raise requests right now.

Note, this fix won't be in officially before dwm-5.6, because hg tip
is what I'm going to release as dwm-5.5.

Kind regards,
