There's a bug with java tray icons and the new gnome-shell, the icon
is no longer displayed. GNOME has adapted an additional spec from the
freedesktop standards for its notification bar (system tray). It now
requires the XAtom _NET_WM_PID to be set, which in turn needs
WM_CLIENT_MACHINE. If they aren't then things don't go smoothly and the
bar won't show the icon/embedded frame.
The following webrev fixes the bug:
This bug is also in jdk6 and 7 as well FWIW.
I would appreciate any comments!
