  1. Yeah, I had that first problem too when I used XMonad. The code to show/hide the contact list is really crufty; there are workarounds cargo-culted from Rhythmbox which apparently fixed real-world problems with Metacity but no-one knows why. I feel like GtkTrayIcon should have solved this once and for all with some kind of gtk_tray_icon_set_toggle_window (GtkTrayIcon *, GtkWindow *) feature…

    If you can figure it out, there would be much rejoicing!
