Summary: gaim starts minimized when it should start in tray

Initial Comment:
On ubuntu edgy, when I quit GNOME with gaim in the tray (and with the session 
manager enabled), when I restart the system it should start in the tray as 
well, but it start with the contact list minimized.

Sorry, I've been on the road pretty much straight for the last couple
weeks (and leaving again in the morning). I should have some time later
this week to devote to this and a couple other tray related bugs. This
particular bug is likely a problem with the asynchronous creation/embedding
of the tray icon in the notification area. I've got an idea on how to fix
this (hopefully for good this time).

Is there anything I can do to help with debugging? I'd really like if this
would be fixed before the next version.

No sorry it's just that when I start gaim using the script and I log-out
and log-in gaim starts in the tray, but when I restart my system gaim
always starts maximized.

So the problem is, I can't use that script because then gaim won't use the
session manager and the bug won't be visible.
In general, since distributions like ubuntu don't use the session manager
by default, there should be a simple switch in the options "start in tray"
and "auto-connect on open" so the users can enable this and add gaim to the
autostart

The strange thing is, when I start GAIM with autostart (and not with the
session manager) GAIM always starts in the tray.

Can you get the gaim debug output with timestamps for this? You'd first
need to open the debug window in gaim and make sure the timestamps option
is selected. Next, you'll probably need to create a shell script to run
gaim, something like this:

   #!/bin/sh
   /usr/bin/gaim -d > /tmp/gaim.log

Finally, change your gnome session to start gaim using this script
instead. There should be a "Sessions" tool under the System->Preferences
menu in Gnome. Log in and out of gnome until you get gaim to start
minimized (instead of hidden to tray), then attach the gaim.log here.

This is still the case with beta5, but in a slightly different way.
When gaim is in the tray on session logout, it sometimes starts restored
(the window is visible) on login. About half the time, the other half
everything works fine. I experienced this on ubuntu edgy with session
management enabled.

This bug was filed against an old version of gaim.  If you are
not using the lastest version, please upgrade.  If you are using
the latest version, and the bug persists, please indicate so and
reopen this bug.
