No, the difference between prgname and application_name is that the
app name is translated. The window class should not be localized.
See the ICCCM for what the window class should be set to.

The tasklist is grouping on the basis of the group leader window,
which is a concept not exposed in the GTK API that ends up
corresponding to "a single process" for GTK.  Traditionally (Motif
etc.), I think it was more like "one toplevel window plus transients"
and really GTK is probably broken here.
