Bug ID: 1037891
Summary: Yast module windows in Plasma: generic x window icon
and grouped as "ruby" in task manager
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Current
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2

_NET_WM_NAME(UTF8_STRING) = "YaST2 - Software Management"
WM_NAME(STRING) = "YaST2 - Software Management"

so it seems something overrides the proper window title (*WM_NAME) with a plain
"YaST2" while completing the init.

Some links to related documentation: + ctrl+f for WM_CLASS on

taskbar) as specified in the respective desktop files (e.g.
