Spotify for Linux is another example of a client whose systray icon does
not show up in Unity. Spotify is an important service to many users in
several European countries, so solving this issue - preferably by
dropping the whitelist - should be given high priority IMO.

First I thought that the lack of support for the Spotify systray icon is
causing this problem:

The client freezes in Ubuntu Classic too, though, which indicates that
the problems are unrelated.
