           Summary: systray plugin can't be added
           Product: Xfce Panel Plugins
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: systray

When I now log out and in again, the message doesn't appear any longer. But the
tray is gone.

When trying to add the tray again, there is a message claiming that this was

I've no idea what the reason might be but I'm really curious. I tried to strace
to xfce-panel while adding the systray plugin, but I didn't see anything useful.

I'll happily do any debugging you might need. Working with gdb and a version
compiled with debugging flags is possible. Just tell me what you need exactly.
