I imagine the whole thing, since that is what you display in the screenshot.

This is my point. If you add a method to the system tray applet to paint 
itself onto a QPixmap, then it shouldn't even matter if the kicker is 
visible, so you won't have to check.

Correct me if I am wrong, but an invisible QWidget can paint itself onto a 
pixmap just as well as a visible one can, right? I know I can DCOP a hidden 
window to print things, and that is just another type of painting.
