icewm window movement

For some reason when i use krusader (file manager), in icewm it moves up a little every time i use it. Itīs now up so high that i canīt get hold of the topbar to move it.
It did the same in fluxbox, but there is an option where you can hold Alt presed and then move the window around whereever you push.

Is there are similiar function in icewm (have looked the config files through but couldnīt find anything) ?

Something I found..............................

Assigning a particular option (icon, default layer, "default workspace", etc.) to a given application or application window can be done as follows:

First, you should aquire the "WM_CLASS" descriptor using "xprop". Simply run

xprop |grep WM_CLASS
(Then use the pointer to select the window you want info on)

in an XTerm. The first item is the window name and the second item it the window class. You can then add the desired options to your "winoptions" file. Entries in that file have one of the following formats:

name.class.option: value
class.option: value
name.option: value

The "WM_CLASS" for a Netscape Navigator window is

"Navigator", "Netscape"

To assign the icon set "navigator_*.xpm" to the Netscape Navigator window, use this option:

Navigator.Netscape.icon: navigator

The other options work according to roughly the same pattern.
