This sounds like it could be #1707, which would mean that this working as intended. Are you talking about the taskbar or the systray? It is meant to allow us to distinguish xpra forwarded windows from local ones. (ie: firefox local vs remote)

changes during use to the symbol of other applications (Outlook, Firefox, ...)

I doubt the icon shows the outlook icon unless you somehow managed to run outlook via xpra.

Same problem with 0.16 which i used before.

0.16 did not have this feature at all. So maybe this is / was a different problem?

Xpra 2.3.1 64 Bit Client (2.3.1 revision 19531)

Make sure you're running 2.3.2, which included a fix for this feature: r19719.

You can also disable it completely with XPRA_DYNAMIC_TRAY_ICON=0.
