Comment 2 for bug 286577

Hello Mr Michael Trausch,

In Kubuntu I have enabled "restore previous session on login".

"

/*If that is the case, I am going to guess that this is because Thunderbird registers something with KDE and AllTray does not.

I think that this is the problem.
I presume that "restore previous session" is done by saving the running
applications into a list and launching them back when log-in is performed.

AllTray should check if "restore previous session" flag is set and if it
is, should change the start-up command of each owned application which
is running when log-off is performed (/owned application = application
started through alltray/) .

/*I don't understand how 5.3 and 5.4
lead to 5.5 (Thunderbird not running).
[...]
*/

Is not 5.3 an 5.4 is 5.4 = 3.0. Close the thunderbird from "close"
button and see that thunderbird process is not running, which means that
tunderbird was not started through alltray.
