Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set GNOME panel background to anything but default grey
2. Run stardict and some other tools that create icons in tray notification area
(gxneur, psi, power manager, sylpheed etc).
Actual results:
All icons integrate cleanly with non-default background except stardict who
still has the default grey background.

Stardict behaves just like any other program that creates icons in tray
notification area.

This is because StarDict's tray icon is a event box, but not a transparent image
widget, the reason of use event box is to receive middle button key.
To solve the problem, we can move to use gtktrayicon widget, but it don't
support middle button presently. So this bug can't be fixed until the new
feature is implemented by gtk. I have ready reported this feature request ago.
Need waiting.

Fixed in svn now. Thank you!

Two years have passed, stardict icon still use the non-transparent background.

Are there any unsolvable problems when using transparent images? Perhaps it's a API limitation in gnome-panel itself?
