How reproducible:

2. Start libreoffice (libreoffice --writer)
3. Try to enable QuickStarter (Tools > Options > Memory)

Without quickstarter LibreOffice opens files very slowly.
With all enabled tweaks -preload, JavaDisabled, 64Gb of memory - 2 seconds.

2. In Gentoo this was fixed

3. The cost of the lack of options per employee:
2 seconds * 50 times * 22 working days = 36 minutes
0.6 hours * 3$ per hour * 12 months = $ 21 per year

The systray thing is gtk2 only while we've moved on to gtk3 by default. The full systray set of gtk apis (https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/GtkStatusIcon.html) fot the systray have been deprecated and the systray concept is deprecated since GNOME3 (https://wiki.gnome.org/Design/OS/MessageTray/Compatibility) so its not practical to reimplement the systray for gtk3. Retaining it for gtk2 only doesn't gain us much.
