Problem: displays "window-less" windows in taskbar

(Small DisplayFusion iconDisplayFusion user searching for free alternatives.)

ZBar is a nice and useful tool, but there is a little bug: "window-less" windows are also shown in the taskbar, eg:
- Strokeit: this a mouse gesture app that works without a window. Still, ZBar displays its name in the taskbar.
- Volume slider: like Strokeit, once it has been used its title stays in the taskbar. NB: on my laptop (Lenovo) the volume OSD is also -briefly- shown.

Still, ZBar is free and works quite nicely, so I'm not complaining. ;) But I've found Small Dual Monitor Taskbar iconDual Monitor Taskbar to be better suited to my needs.
