Description Shawn Starr 2008-09-08 20:43:00 UTC
Description of problem: Running virt-manager does not hide the main virt-manager console. 

One less window cluttering desktop would be nice if we can make it use a system tray icon. Could also provide additional functionality with the systray icon too.

Systray icon has been upstream since virt-manager-0.8.0, and recently a patch was committed to keep the app running if the systray icon is present but all windows have been closed.
