@Chow Loong Jin: The colour behind the icons is the same as the colour
of the panel, if you remove any background image or transparency.

With regards to Opera, perhaps they don't _need_ to get involved. This
change happened outside of the applications affected. The mechanism they
all use to produce a tray icon has changed its behaviour, it seems.

Of course, I can't back that up with any proof. It's just my educated
guess. I just find it hard to believe that so many applications suddenly
had a regression without it being a shared, external factor.

The issue presents itself irrespective of the GTK theme used, or whether
compositing is enabled.

The workaround of updating each individual application to use
"GTKStatusIcon" (?) instead may work, but it's not really fixing the
cause of the problem, I suspect.

GTK Version 2.18.4
GNOME 2.28.1 (but it happened early on in Karmic's development cycle)
Ubuntu Karmic Koala
