From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux) 
Description of problem: 
 Im having a weird problem with my K desktop, 
 in the system tray there is a 'gap' with the other icons  
 like : 
 Any idea's ?? 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Log in as a normal user 
2. Be sure you have the system tray in your KDE taskbar 
3. You can notice a weird gap which is really ugly - I have noticed 
this only in Fedora 1 and RH9 
Actual Results:  One or more gaps between the applets (If I have the 
RHN applet, the KMix applet, and the GAIM applet, they aer seperates 
by a weird gap) 
Expected Results:  All the applets in the system tray should be 
"touching" each other 
Additional info: 
Apparently the invisible icon will re-appear when you gain root 
privileges (indicated by a bunch of yellow keys).

I've made a workaround to this problem: 
I killed the "pam-panel-icon" process which seemed to solve the 
whole problem. 

Comment 2 Peter van Egdom 2005-07-29 15:10:41 UTC
Do you still see this problem in newer Fedora Core releases (e.g. FC4)?

Comment 3 Peter van Egdom 2006-06-24 08:16:28 UTC
I've seen this behaviour myself in early Fedora Core releases (FC1) but not
anymore with FC4 and later.

Setting status to "CURRENTRELEASE".

If you still experience this problem with Fedora Core release 5 feel free to
reopen this bug report.
