Bug Description

Several screenshots on the web show a nice syncany status tray icon, however on my machine the icon remains invisible (there are other tray icons available like, pidgin, dropbox an so on, so a system tray seems to be available).

When launching syncany, I see momentary movement in the systray, so something seems to be happening but no icon is displayed.

Here's part of syncany's stderr stream:

I just found out there *is* a tray icon, but it's invisible so it nestles in between the volume controls and the dropbox icon. If I click the mouse in that area, the trayicon menu is displayed properly.
