Alternative shells conflict with chat/buddy windows.

I use bblean as my default windows shell (I run XP). When using the explorer shell you would normally be able to click on a channel and a new window would pop up. I tried two different versions of bblean, each time channel windows, buddy requests and the add buddy dialogue window would not display. It was perplexing seeing as I'd have a new window entry in my task bar.

Just though you guys should know. Let me know if you need any more details.

Edit: I found a bit of a resolution to this. Hit your windows key, navigate to BlackBox->bbLeanSkin and toggle skin off. This will keep your task bar/plugins but will remove the replacement skin from the top of various windows.
