Then I really don't see a problem here. The behaviour is okay, and it is unneccessary to automatically switch to a newly created tag when you are on »nil.« Then GIMP opens up in an not-focused view when it is the first app I start. It's just relevant for the first time I start an app in wmii, it is totally consistent and competely uncritical.
