Actually, this is still not perfect, as now you get a tag '1 ' rather
than '1' when using the $MODKEY-Shift-t shortcut in the default wmiirc.

We _could_ do the fix in wmiirc (using the shell or sed to strip the
whitespace), but that feels rather like a workaround for inconsistent
wmiimenu behaviour. After all, arbitrary strings which are *not*
substrings of the wmiimenu stdin may be returned - why not arbitrary
substrings as well?
