Description of problem:
Some windows show icons in the window-list (gnome) while
others don't.
There should be a configuration option in the windowlist
so that users can assign icons to specific applications if they like.

Second, when one has a "alway group window" option enabled, the group
no longer shows icons sometimes.
For example, say I have 3 pdf's open in acroread. The acroread group
shows the pdf icon; however, when I have multiple xemacs
windows open, the xemacs group does not show xemacs icon (but simply a
plain white blank icon). Note however, that when only a since xemacs
window is open, the xemacs icon is shown correctly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.add window list to the gnome-panel
2.select "always group-windows"
3.open multiple xemacs, or xterm or acroread windows

need to log an individual bug against each of them.

The solution is to fix the bug in each of the applications rather than
a confusing "work around application bug" interface in the window list.
