There's historically been a non-trivial set of gtk applications whose system tray icon sometimes initially appears blank (nm-applet is the usual suspect).  One workaround that often works is to quit/kill the app and restart it).

Unfortunately, most attempts to debug and fix this has resulted in a fair amount of finger-pointing between gnome/kde at where the fault lies. :-/

If only kill/quit would bring it back.  :-(    I'd be happy with a workaround....  Finger pointing, bummer.
Comment 3 Ed Greshko 2012-03-18 19:39:00 EDT
Fixed with the release of 4.8.1
