These are override redirect windows that are ignored by window managers
(well, not entirely, compositing managers need to paint all windows,
even override-redirect).   You can set this in window attributes or with
gdk_window_set_override_redirect() but it makes sense only before the
window is mapped IIUC.

Now I feel dirty for telling you.
