But the whole problem is not "minimizing-to-tray", because the close
button doesn't do that. it just minimizes rhythmbox (you can see that in
wm other than gnome, for instance, in e17, hitting the close button, or
clicking the tray icon just minimizes rhythmbox, it is shown in the icon
box). The idea is to hide the window, just like almost every other app
that has a tray icon does, not minimize it. Take a look at gaim,
liferea, tomboy ... if i didn't explain it correctly.
