F9 KDE4 System Tray - Unidentified object
Last modified: 2008-05-17 23:04:39 EDT
Description of problem:
When starting KDE4 more often than not and unidentifiable object appears in the
system tray. You cannot select the object. Sometimes it appears large,
sometimes small. I have taken a snapshot and attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (l applicable):
start kde, object appears in system tray
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start kde, object appears in system tray
object appears in system tray. Object is not selectable for more information.
No unidentified objects appear. All objects are clickable for more information.

Unidentified object between nm-applet and kpowersave
It's likely sealert that hides itself, but apparently, not too well (in
combination with kde4's workarounds for gtk lacking argb support for systray icons).
Interesting to note: the last few days the problem went away with system
updates. I rebooted my system over and over again, and i couldn't reproduce.
Today, I applied the updates below and the problem has returned... and it occurs
on every reboot... hope this offers an additional clue.

I still see this in the F9 KDE live image. My picture looks basically like the
attachment. Moving the panel around the screen a bit eventually made it go away.
Also got it on fully updated rawhide, right now i've got 4 unidentified objects
in kde tray.

Invalid gtk icon
It seems that GTK icons are either cut (instead of resized) or trashed.
Still getting it in 4.0.3.
comment upstream please ( http://bugs.kde.org/155381 ).
