I hope somebody is able and willing to answer a question about Gnome.
The Gnome Menu Panel (as distributed by RedHat 9.0) has a window list consisting
of an item for each open window on the current Gnome Workspace.
Once there are 4 or 5 windows on a Gnome Workspace, this window list becomes
hard to use. This poses an especial problem for most applications which open
several windows. These applications generate a separate window list item for
However some applications only generate one window list item no matter how many
windows they have open. The single window list item for these applications
generates a pop-up menu for all the windows of that application. Examples of
such applications are Mozilla, yelp (the Gnome help facility) and,
(collectively) all OpenOffice applications.
How can can I force an application, that I write, to generate only one window
list item, as Mozilla, yelp, and OpenOffice do?

I have tried to answer this question by using Gnome's help and by
wondering around http://www.gnome.org -- all to no avail.
