That's wrong, as I saw it. I tried using doIgnore on Pidgin window,
and it just stayed above all other windows, without creating any gaps.
Gaps are created by layouts, and doIgnore is exactly what excludes
window from any layout.

Then, as I said, you could try command-line tools, such as "wmctrl -r
<WIN> -b add,hidden" should do this.
