Why does Sawfish dislike KDE dockable applications?

I use Sawfish from Debian testing/unstable.  When I start a KDE
application which docks into the system tray, its system tray icon
usually jumps over the screen crazily, either "forever" (until my
patience gets exhausted and I kill the application) or until it succeeds
in allocating an an extra large space in the system tray and parks
there.  It looks like Sawfish is competing with the system tray, wanting
to swallow the system tray icon and put it into a window.

This happens only with Sawfish and KDE applications.  It doesn't happen
with other window manages (e.g. Metacity or kwin) nor with Gnome

How can I prevent this problem occurring?

Thanks for any advice.

those who believe in happy endings and fairy godmothers.  Perhaps the hundreds
of nitty frustrations drive away all but those who habitually focus on the end
goal.                     -- Frederick P. Brooks, Jr. in The Mythical Man-Month
