Ah, OK.  So I understand why it's like that, but it doesn't make it less
confusing.  Ideally, an application should allow its default icon in the
alt-tab list to be overridden.  Otherwise, any `Add to panel' icon a
user adds to run an existing command, perhaps with particular options,
will have an alt-tab icon that doesn't match the one the user chose for
the panel.

Anyway, Jeff Waugh seems to be saying that the `Root Terminal' menu item
will be deleted entirely, so the problem won't exist for this one case.
