tray menu shows wrong status for "main window" when started minimized

Bug Description

Binary package hint: transmission

The right click menu of transmission's tray icon shows a "main window" checkbox, which should be checked if the transmission windows is visible and unchecked if the window is minimized.

However, when transmission is started with the command line option "-m" to start minimized in the tray, the behavior of this checkbox switches so that it always represents the wrong status.

I have screenshots attached to demonstrate the wrong behavior.

Right, I doesn't count as "fix released" until it's in ubuntu. That is why I marked it as "fix commited", which is often used when the bug has been fixed uptream since the bugwatch may be out of sync.

Although the fix is very small it will not make it into karmic, because today was "FinalFreeze" and the issue is a cosmetic one.

Thanks again for the great work. This is how bug tracking makes fun.
