Hm, it seems to generate a LeftBarDND event for me ("LeftBarDND 1 status").

OK, I figured it was probably rox's fault (I'm all for new windows
popping up on the tags with their groups only).

Correction: they don't work for me when starting from floating mode
and using the modkey (using the grabbox they work fine).

Hm, defining the functions outside of Action-overridekeys doesn't seem
to work either. It's still "key $MODKEY-foo || fn $key { bar }",
right? It seems so in rc.wmii. The rest of my rc.wmii.local does
work, so I know it's getting executed.
