Summarizing, well behavior is:
     1. alert windows have no titles;
     2. alert windows don't appear in window list;
     3. (non-modal) alert windows appear in pager as "Alert -

Point 2 simply needs a 

        gtk_window_set_skip_taskbar_hint (alert, TRUE);

(IMHO it should be maneged directly in eel_alert* functions)

Unfortunately by now GTK+ and/or WM specs don't help us to fit point 1
and 3. Is you set a title

        gtk_window_set_title (alert, title);
it appears in both window titlebar and pager :-(

So, waiting for it, I think I'll use "Alert - nautilus-cd-burner" only
for non-modal alerts in n-c-b, for example the one that appears when you
choose "Write to CD" for iso file popup menu and you don't have a cd

PS: what about alert window icons? If you don't set any icon (or set it
to NULL), it is automatically used a simple GTK_STOCK_NEW icon. :-(
Do you think is better use GTK_STOCK_DIALOG_* (matching the icon in
alert body) or "gnome-fs-cdrom" ?
