How to tell wmii not to close the view when the last x-window application has exited?

This is a wmii question. Is there a way to tell wmii not to close the view when the last x-window application has exited?

I am running a java application in the view, it is the default tile mode. At a point I set it 'invisible' by calling JFrame.visible(false) on the application's JFrame.
Even though the application is still running, there is no 'X-window' visible so wmii decided to mark the view for closing. I have checked and the application is still running. Setting the applicaiton JFrame to visible does not redisplay the window. If another view is selected wmii removes the view completely.

If another X-window is in the view then the view is fine and I can toggle the visibilty of the window without any problem.

I would prefer not to run dummy x-windows in each view to ensure that the view is 'sticky'. wmii seems to be flexible and I hope that I can set a value which will cause it to hang around.

thank you
