I am running wingaim beta3. I use the systray icon.

I noticed, that it shows a different status, than the main window (the buddy list).
The main windows says "Available", while the trayicon has a sheet of paper over it,
meaning "idle" AFAIK.
Right clicking the tray icon and selecting status Available in the pop up menu, makes
both show the same status : Available (normal systray icon).
