systray-dock Subject description: jwm (and other wms)
For some reason jwm 'acts up' on me at times, not expanding the dock or having dock icons misplaced(?) - this most recently in wary 020 with jwm vsvn-492 (although it has happened in other pups with other jwm versions). The dock is usually on a vertical tray and may need an extra attribute perhaps, it's not very clear to me (usually a simple <Dock/> line in the tray file would be fine). Often I'd just start/quit another systray-oriented app like xpad and it would make the 'invisible' one pop up (or not), kind of annoying in an otherwise great lil' wm. Anyone else have this happen in jwm?

Interesting. It sound's quite different, but I have noticed a couple of gtk based programs (the one I remember is audacious) with tray icons which if you kill them at least sometimes the tray icon disappears but the space it occupied remains. I believe it is a problem with these programs, not with JWM, because in the case of audacious a grey rectangle also remains where the main window was. N.B. this is with the old skinned audacious interface - I don't think I've had this happen since I've been using the gtk2 interface. _________________ DEATH TO SPREADSHEETS
