I'm sorry, I just saw your post now for some reason. I don't think
the problem is with tango-icon-theme because I have 2 identical
laptops with very similar configurations and neither of them have that
package installed. Only 1 of the laptops is having this problem.

The problem is with system tray icons that are not panel plugins. For
example: wicd, twinkle, blueman, orage. The icons for those do not
appear at all except for the twinkle icon which appears right in the
center of the screen. All other icons work fine, and system tray
icons that are panel plugins such as xfce4-mixer and clipman work
fine.

Any ideas?

It doesn't sound exactly like what I've seen but it's very similar.

Thanks Mark. I really think this is a different issue. I emerged
tango-icon-theme with no change. I have all icons except those that
should be in the system tray, and even those missing system tray icons
do appear in the xfce4 menu. There are no blank placeholders or
anything like that. They just don't show up in the system tray at
all.

I did notice this from Twinkle:

X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3

I researched it on Google but got nowhere.

Yeah, it's different unfortunately.

I'm curious as to whether you see this with a new user account on the
failing machine? Possibly it's something left over in the .config/xfce
directory saved from earlier days that's causing you problems? New
user, new directory, simple test.
