Bug Description

When used with a pinned (or indeed unpinned?) file manager, 'Present windows preview on click when several windows are grouped together' shows hidden system file-manager windows, which it should not, and has the further consequence of shrinking the preview of the windows it should be showing. Oh no!

Cairo-dock version 3.4.1. My file manager is 'Nemo'.

Keep up the excellent work.

I think this should be easy to fix - indeed I think I could it myself. The hidden/dummy windows show up with, only, 'nemo' as their name; there's no path - whereas normal folders show up as e.g. 'Docs - /home/<user>/Documents' or, in the case of the desktop, just, 'Desktop'.

So all that's need programmatically, it would seem, is to check the name and, if it is blank or just 'nemo', not display it. I think I might be able to do this myself - if someone would point me to the right part of the Cairo code. I could then post the required changes back here.

Ah, perhaps the file in question is the following one? cairo-dock-user-interaction.c

Also, I've discovered a rather simple workaround. To wit: in the Cairo GUI, under Behaviour -> Behaviour (sic), add 'nemo' to 'Except the following classes'. This will create new Nemo icon for every (visible!) Nemo window.
