No

with i.e. openbox 3 and the new blackbox,

this two managers work fine with tasklist applet.

openbox 3:

sometimes (depends on speed of mouseklich ???)
filer windows are in a layer below.

new blackbox-0.70:

    I have seen this with openbox 3.2, but not OroboROX. I
    think it is an openbox bug, but I'm not sure.
    If you use the window menu to put the first filer window on
    the normal layer then all subsequent filer windows will also
    be on the normal layer.
    Are you using a panel or pinboard? Maybe it is inheriting
    (wrongly) the setting from one of those.

    In Options use Compatability => Override window manager
    control of the pinboard and panels

    I was vexed with this problem in openbox3, but finally ran
    it down.
    Rox filer windows would inherit the LAYER_BELOW hint from
    the rox panel.

    Solution:
    In the menu, go ROX-Filer -> Options -> Compatibility
    and check the box "Panel is a 'dock'".

    Now log out and back in to X.

    Do the OpenBox people have any comment about this behaviour?
