Some applications have problem with Systray

Cairo-Dock Plug-ins

Bug Description

Some applications, which work correctly with Gnome Notification Area, show unusual behaviors with Cairo-Dock's systray when it's on the dock. A part of this problem may be because some applications don't "see" the systray if its icon isn't clicked once at least (i.e., when its dialog isn't shown at least one time).

For example, until the systray icon isn't clicked once, Pidgin quits when it is closed, while it should continue running in systray. Also Alarm Clock doesn't behave as expected even when the systray isn't on the dock, while it works correctly with Gnome Notification Area. The third application I want to mention is Livestation: it can't be started at all when the systray dialog is hidden.
