After upgrading 4.8 from RC1 to RC2 system tray does not show some
applications any more. 2 examples are Opera and Thunderbird with
FireTray (and one more). The applications have not been updated.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Launch application, eg. Opera without disabling system tray icon.

Actual Results:  
There's only task bar entry, no system tray icon.

Expected Results:  
There should also be system tray icon.

Still happens on 4.8.0 (openSUSE packages). It seems to happen with all
non-KDE4 applications (including Amarok 1.4).

Same here - 4.8.0 on Gentoo ~AMD64 - all non-KDE applications are missing from system tray. 
Impossible to access Skype, as it's running and there's no way how to open it's window. It's impossible to connect to WIFI networks, as wicd client is running and automatically minimized to tray.

Well, it also works on my 64-bit pc at work, but not on my 32-bit pc at
home. The openSUSE software repositories are almost identical though.

Problem was solved by rm'ing ~/.kde4 (remember kids, don't try this at
home!)

I really don't think that removing ~/.kde4 can be considered as solving
or even as a workaround.

PS. Issue still here in KDE 4.8.1.

removing ~/.kde4/share/config/{plasma*,kdesktop*} nullifies plasma config and "fixes" the problem.

and my KDE config directory spans from 4.0 and each version in-between.
with all the outmoded, half-deprecated undocumented crap which
accumulated inside KDE configs in that time, it's no wonder that
something crazy, like this, happens.

I certainly don't want to delete the configuration files and doing it
actually makes it impossible to debug the real issue.

So maybe anyone knows where is the system tray section in these config
files? I grepped -i 'tray' from these files, but this did not turn out
anything interesting.
