Just what I said. Sorry for the repition guys (crossed posts).

The way I've fixed it currently is to modify wmiirc to show all the
avaliable tags, not just the current one. The following should work
until a better fix is available:

  xwrite /view/sel/sel/tags "`( wmiir read /view/sel/sel/tags ; echo ; wmiir read /tags ) | sort | uniq | wmiimenu`" &;;

Pardon if this is not good sh, but I only have bash ;)
