People always said that clicking the text works fine, therefore the
jumping icons are not a problem. With Pidgin however, clicking the text
just shows the recent notification (which made me want to open the
contact list!) and doesn't behave like clicking the Pidgin tray icon
directly. That only works as intended when there's no recent notification.
(Should this possibly go into a bug report? I've no overview which bugs
are known...)
