Windows 7: The old 'i'll hide your tray icon' ploy

The old 'i'll hide your tray icon' ploy

Anyone else noted that the tray icons come and go, no matter how you define them in the Customize panel?

Mostly when restoring a window and then minimizing it to tray again.
A Show Icon and notifications becomes a Only notifications again.

I've never had that problem, in any build.
What icons of yours are doing this? And what build are you running?

yeah exactly my thoughts. In vista i got so annoyed to reset the hide/unhide icons i just gave up trying and took the daily gamble what would change this time.

Thats why i was it doing the same in 7
