Vidalia creates blank tray icons in addition to its own icon

Using: tor-browser-gnu-linux-x86_64-2.3.12-alpha-1-en-US.tar.gz

This did not happen with tor-browser-gnu-linux-x86_64-2.2.35-7.2-dev-en-US.tar.gz (vidalia 0.2.17)

When starting everything via ./tor-browser-start, the vidalia icon starts off yellow and only takes up one space in the systray. But when the icon turns green, a new blank/invisible trayicon appears next to the vidalia icon.

When I press "stop tor", the vidalia icon turns red but the invisible trayicon remains. And when I press "start tor", there are now two invisible tray icons next to the green vidalia icon.

On exiting, all the invisible icons disappear along with the vidalia icon.

A fix for this is in my branch chiiph/bug5338_tray (in the vidalia side) to provide a way to show a message in the app's tray icon and not a new one. It has been merged in alpha and it will be out with 0.3.2.
The tbb plugin has been updated too to use this new tray icon feature.
