My example was slightly flawed indeed - konq's own I/O operations indeed
don't appear there (just like they don't pop up a progress dialog window
when not using the all-in-one listview).
Minicli's stat, however, must give some feedback, hence the progress dialog
that appears if the site takes more than a few seconds to answer.

Anyway, even if the systray icon has the same "delay before appearing" as
normal progress dialogs, I still don't like the idea of a "jumping" systray.
All other icons there stay there for the whole session, unless you manually
add/remove any. Difficult problem.
