You should check the class information of the client instead. This
tells you the kind of program it is, rather than what title it has
chosen to present itself with.

wmiir read /view/sel/sel/class

For a ClientFocus event to occur, the respective client must have
already been created---because the client number provided by
ClientFocus points to the "/client/<client number>" client
information path in wmii's file system.

Maybe your logging method might be broken? (I'd just run "wmiir read
/event" in a separate terminal, run Ekiga & receive a call. Then
observe what events are reported in the terminal.)

Maybe that means the pop-up window isn't a fully qualified client.
It could be one of those pseudo notification windows that are
animated in some awkward position on your screen. Azureus does the
same thing with its animated (it slowly rises up from the bottom,
like a zombie from its grave) pop-up notification "windows".
