No

On Ubuntu 12.04, Gnome, with XMonad window manager, the pwsafe systray icon shows up at the top left corner, over the Gnome panel.
It stays on the workspace where pwsafe was started, so it's not too much of an inconvenience.

This doesn't bother me much, just thought you might like to know.

    The problem with the systray icon on Linux surfaces on many different
    combinations of display manager/window manger. Its basically an
    artifact of the dissimilar implementations on different versions of Linux.

    We use the wxWidges UI library, which runs on top of Gtk (which I
    believe , so unless one of these two libraries take care of the
    underlying incompatibilities, there isn't really much we (pwsafe) can do
    about the systray icon.

    Ah, I see. It probably comes down to conforming to standards such as those from http://www.freedesktop.org/
    I'll see if I can figure out enough to log issues upstream.

    I assume the same answer applies to the distorted pwsafe icon I see in my system tray, as shown in the attachment.
