Bug Description

Binary package hint: libgtk2-trayicon-perl

The tray icons from perl programs using Gtk2::TrayIcon have a white background when the panel is set to be transparent.
This is a known issue of Gtk2::TrayIcon version 0.04
 It has been fixed in Gtk2::TrayIcon 0.06.
So upgrading the package would be nice.

I can confirm that using 0.06 fixes this issue (using gmusicbrowser).

I've been experiencing this in Lucid.
gmusicbrowser uses libgtk2-trayicon-perl and any icon I use for the tray shows it's transparent area as solid white.

It's a slightly different bug with the same symptom, though this one seems to be theme-dependent.
It has been reported here :

libgtk2-trayicon-perl is more or less deprecated, replaced Gtk2::StatusIcon.
But it has a few features that are missing in Gtk2::StatusIcon, so I, at least, will probably keep using it.

About this bug in gmusicbrowser, see
I found a fix, but it breaks the transparency in non-gnome panels :(
