Yes, renaming the binary does mean that by default, the WM_CLASS
changes, as by default it is the same as the program name, which by
default is initialized to argv[0]. You can 'fix' this by using
g_set_prgname. I cannot think of any valid situation that would
require the use of a renamed binary, though.
