Description of problem:
The gaim system tray icon has a gray background, whereas other applications, such as kalarm do not. This defeats much of the asethetic pleasure that having a transparent panel provides. Please!, make those gray pixels transparent, it can't be that hard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Make your gnome-panel transparent.
2.Set the option that allows gaim to go to the system tray.
3.Look at the system tray.
Actual Results: There was an unsightly gray box and a yellow dude.
Expected Results: It was gorgeous, a yellow dude free from the gray prison.

... then please provide us with a patch to do it :)
I believe this is actually a limitiation of the system tray spec, and not really
something Gaim can fix properly
This isn't a gaim specific problem and references to upstream bugs are noted.
