Bug Description

System Version: Ubuntu MATE 18.04
Package: mate-panel 1.20.1-3ubuntu1

How to reproduce:
- log in with new user profile
- install Skype from Software Boutique
- launch Skype

=> icon in nofitication area is corrupted (see screenshot)

This is already noticeable on default panel size, enlarging the panel makes it even more obvious with lots of duplicate Skype icons appearing.

This bug does not appear on the GTK2-based Ubuntu MATE 16.04 running the exact same Skype version.

I just tried the MATE version of Linux Mint 19 Beta, which is based on Ubuntu 18.04.
In their default panel layout the Skype notification icon is displayed correctly.

Interesting... then it's probably not as constistently reproducible in Mint.
In UM it always happens for me, but so far in Mint I cannot get the bug to show up.
I changed panel sizes and themes, it always looks fine, whereas in UM it's always messed up.
