Done in r15172, related improvements in r15173 + r15174: the native tray code can be disabled by using:


(applies to both Linux and win32)

Mostly a FYI: launch vlc and its system tray should appear as before. We supply a unique GUID, so users can configure "tray and notifications" to be enabled / disabled, and those settings will now stick, no matter what version of xpra is installed (64-bit vs 32-bit, launched from gui or not, etc).

This is long overdue for closure - I haven't seen any issues with tray icons (Steam/VLC/Chrome sometimes) in the last few months despite reasonable amounts of usage. Closing.
