This is a GTK+ issue:

Something to do with the interaction between GtkStatusIcon and GtkTreeView.

Never got fully investigated by GTK+ maintainers.  We stopped using GtkStatusIcon about the time we ported to gtk3 and the problem went away on its own.

I tested the proposed upstream patch and indeed, it fixes the issue. I suggest to include the patch into the gtk2 update.
Comment 3 Benjamin Otte 2013-09-10 21:46:27 EDT
The patch has landed in GTK2 upstream, so it should be fine to include:

    GtkTreeView: make tree expanding/collapsing more robust

    gtk_grab_remove() *after* we did the expanding/collapsing, otherwise
    grab_notify() might kick in and mess with our state. Fixes bug #675835.
