There is no difference between kde and standard systray anymore, as the
"specific" part for kde is treated in the WM that acts as a proxy for
the systray/kde notification system.

The problem is that for some reason the KDE systray don't always set
their size properly when loaded by gtk plug.

I'm affraid it will be a won't fix issue.
