I have a very strange bug which I also had in the latest
snapshot. Its reproducable with every client.
For this specify the following rule:
/Firefox.*/ -> 3 (Important is the whitespace behind the

If you launch firefox now it will be tagged with 3 but the
strange thing is that you can't access it with mod-3 now. Ok
lets says its a feauter cause you can use whitespaces for
tags (which I think its not) but If you open another client
in view 1 and tag it with 2.
If you switch to view 2 now and
close the client you also wont be switched back to view 1,
instead you will be switched to view 3.

I think its very strange and to see a whitespace at the end
of a line in wmiirc is not an easy task.

Is its because of simplicity that you allow a whitespace
here? I think it would be good to strip some characters from
the tags, especially cause we dont use mutliple tags (apart
from *) anymore.
