Yes, thank you.

After reading your hint I used "xprop -spy" to see the changes of the X
properties from the plugin, if new messages arrive. But I still wonder
about the fact that the X property changes have no visual effect in my
setup (KDE with kwin or GNOME with metacity). Anyway, now I have
probably enough information to translate the option.
