Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] tray icon behaviour

Well, right now I'm using GNOME3, and yes, the RB icon shows in the message tray, and
when I click it, a....bubble...looking...area appears and shows me the song that's playing
and a "Next" button. but I don't really understand it's use since it's closed when I click
the "close window" button in the main window, I would have thought it would...uhm...
save the application's state? (keep playing the song I'm playing, without closing the
application), and have options to manipulate the application or reopen the main window.

If I'm not understand correctly, I'm sorry O_o...English isn't my native language. I'm
not sure if I explain myself correctly.

This change is intentional, for two reasons: it was mostly a
workaround for poor task switching, which has been fixed in GNOME 3,
or needs to be fixed harder if it's still a problem; and I think it
makes even less sense for the persistent representation of the
application itself (rather than just some of its state) to be a
message tray icon as opposed to a status icon. 

The status icon plugin has been removed, because between the GNOME 3
message tray and Ubuntu's sound menu I don't think it has a place on
current desktops and I'm not interested in maintaining it, but if
someone wanted to revive it (removing the notification code,
obviously) and continue to look after it, I'd probably be okay with
