I have just installed xMule and set it to minimise to the docking tray 
but rather than the icon appearing in the tray when I minimise, it 
simply disappears and i have to kill -9 it.

So, AMSN's icon appears in my Gnome docking tray but doesn't function 
properly and xMule doesn't aappear in the tray at all. I assume this is 
a problem with my gnome dock? Is there something I can do about this? Is 
there something I'm missing?
