This most likely means that Azureus mapped the windows itself, rather than
asking for the window manager to map them. This means that Azureus wants the
popups to be undecorated and that it wants to manage their keyboard focus and
positioning itself. There will most likely be no difference in tip, but you
might check the behavior with another window manager. As for waiting to report
this, you've already reported it so I don't understand the question.
