Vertical line in System Tray

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kicker-applets

In the system tray in kde, when using it's visible/hidden icon feature, to the right of the green arrow, a vertical line shows up. It shows up on all desktops, with every color background, with and without transparence (kicker). Please see the screenshot(s) attached.

A screenshot of it on a transparent kicker with a black background (really visible)... if you can't find it (unlikely), look between the green arrow and the sound mixer icon

Actually, this line is intentionally to differentiate (at least that's the intention) the green arrow from other tray icons. I agree that depending on your colour and kicker settings it may not look very good.

Well, first, Aaron Seigo (the developer of this applet) have already solved this bug, is just a matter of applying his patch.

But I have another problem. My systray-hidding applet just won't show up. My notification area is crowded with 10 icons and I want to hide some of them, but can't find the apropriate applet to put the goddam button there. Any clues? I think this is a bug, if confirmed will open a bug.
