I don't get this problem with other programs as sylpheed-claws. No matter, I
use another workaround for this systray issue. I added a qjackctl menu in my
audio button. It have 2 options: "killall qjackctl" and "start qjackctl". 

The good news is at this problem occur only with recipe switching, so I almost
never use this qjackctl menu. The other good news is at I try to use
stalonetray that is freedesktop compliant with crystal and it work fine.

B.t.w., QJackCtl is a very good program.
