That list shows applications that were in the tray with an icon since
you've added the plugin to the panel.

But maybe enabled when the plugins was added (or an invisible icon), see below.

Some applications uses gtkstatusicon and set the the visibility to
false, this does not really hide the icon, but empties the window. I'm
not really sure if this is a problem at my side, but i'll take a look
if I can fix it.
