The trouble is that I can't get it to match title effectively.
Apparently, the main window starts with something other than Pan as the
title to begin with, and by the time it has adjusted, kwin has already
locked on it and decided what size to make it, as it doesn't match.
Further complicating things is that the window title includes the group
and post titles when they are selected, so it's always changing, and the
fact that I the tasks window says Pan as well (tho the posting window
doesn't), and the negative lookahead functionality doesn't seem to be
working, either -- I either get several of the windows, or none of them.
The tasks window, posting window, and main window, are all three "normal
windows" too, in terms of type. (Selecting "normal window" only /does/
eliminate the log window from the match, as it's dialog window, but not the
posting window, which is the most irritating.)

Absolutely. Agreed that it'll affect only a relative few, and I'd not
bother posting it, except that if my admittedly non-C/C++ programmer guess
is correct, the fix should be trivial boilerplate, and will likely take
less time than our posts did. =8^) It'll need fixed at some point, and
if it's that trivial, might as well get it crossed off the list now,
rather than later, especially since it'll fix someone's problem with it.
