kbluetoothd tray icon never appears

Bug Description

Since I've updated kubuntu breezy to kde 3.5.1, I notice that the kbluetoothd tray icon never appears.

I know there is an option to disable it, but even killing kbluetoothd then running it again from the command line dos not make the icon reappear (as stated on the documentation). The command line option to force the icon does not make it appear either.

Particular condition in my machine is that I don't have a bluetooth adapter. I noticed a lot of flooding of kbluetoothd in .xsession-errors in this case, so I wanted to disable kbluetoothd and noticed the missing tray icon.

maybe kdebluetooth has to be rebuild accross kde3.5.1 libs.

Also true here, however it is started as it displays notificiation messages (on left side of the screen), therefore I suspect it is hidden somewhere under the panel.

I had this problem but after killing and restarting kbluetoothd a few times the panel icon appeared.

There is an command line option, '--dontforceshow', which is supposed to show the icon even if it is disabled, but I haven't tried it.

When I start kbluetoothd as root, the icon does not appear in the tay.
Yet starting it as a normal user did the trick, at least in my case ;-)
