I am running KDE 4.5.0 compiled locally using the kdesrc-build scripts,
and I am having a problem with the system tray applet.  When I quit a
KDE application the system tray icon for that application does not get
removed from the system tray.  This happens with amarok, kmix,
kwalletmanager.  It is only happening with KDE apps though.  If I have a
GTK app that uses the system tray, and I exit the app it's icon is also
removed.  Any ideas as to what may be causing this?

Are you sure you are quitting the app, or are you simply hitting the
window-manager's close button, so the app minimizes to the tray, with the
settings set so it remains shown there?

I have tried quitting the applications three different ways, all with
the same results. 1) By clicking on the window manager 'X', 2) By
choosing File -> Quit from within the application, 3) By right
clicking on the system tray icon and choosing quit. All methods leave
the same phantom icon in the system tray.

Is it possible that there is some external library that needs to be
updated along with 4.5? If that is true would cmake let me know that
I'm missing a dependency?

Thanks for the reply,
