Power manager icon initially displays when it shouldn't

Bug Description

gnome-power-manager has options to tell it whether to show up in the system tray or not, such as don't show when the battery is fully charged and not being drained. It seems if it is set not to be displayed when AWN (or at least the system tray applet) starts then instead you get a blank space in the system try, as shown in the screenshot (attached). You can get rid of it by telling gnome-power-manager to always display, and then setting it back to whatever hide conditions you want.

> Actually, I think that gnome-panel only hides the issue - on gnome-panel they don't use a grid view like we do, instead, they display all the icons in a row (or column depending on orientation), and therefore the icon is shown only as a 1px wide stripe, which looks as if the icon wasn't there (but I'm sure you will find the 1px stripe if you try to)...
