Setting FocusRequestFlashTime to 1 as previously suggested to stop the
flashing "soon" works, but, in my case, does not get rid of the app from
the task bar. (I use an icewm startup script to start rox filer to
enable pinboard support. In 1.2.27, this worked fine and no rox filer
window appeared in the task bar - blinking or otherwise.) Since it
appears this new icewm behavior change is permanent, I'd like to come up
with a patch to undo this new behavior, but I could use some help, as I
do not know the icewm codebase very well.
I started looking at the source code hoping that the change was
localized to where the focusRequestFlashTime variable was used
(TaskBarApp::HandleTimer in atask.cc), but there appears to be no change
with respect to that code since 1.2.27. So I started to look elsewhere
by doing a recursive diff of the src directory, but nothing jumped out
at me due to my lack of experience with the icewm codebase.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, so I can make the patch,
I'd greatly appreciate it.

I am not and expert too, but I would start with web cvs access, selected
version where this change happened, find what was modified and could be
Or you should be able to user cvs diff feature betwean tags.
