[xmonad] small problems with doFullFloat

Lara,

There's no need to use composeOne (I think it may solve problem1)
myManageHook =
  [ appName =? "Skype --> doFloat
  , isFullscreen --> doFullFloat
  ]

I not sure, but I guess there's no pretty solution to problem2,
since it's a flash problem/feature, when it loses focus it closes itself.
Other apps behave normally, like a fullscreen presentation, etc.

Regards,
Henrique G. Abreu
