I have tried it but without success. Adding/removing/changing visibility preference of icons is done on QML side (plasma/generic/applets/systemtray/package/contents/ui/main.qml). I tried to create a Q_INVOKABLE method in Applet class which would call repaint of m_widget's parent view and call this method from QML right after the task is added/removed/visibility preference changed. It didn't work, the bug reproduced. I also tried to call the method from QML right after the height/width of the plasmoid is adjusted, still no success. I'm out of ideas, tbh (I forgot to mention in the description that other viewport update modes rather than full one also failed to fix the issue). 

There's "TODO" file in plasma/generic/applets/systemtray with item "Fix sizing on desktop" which seems at least related to the discussed bug. Perhaps I should email to the creator of this file to ask whether he has any ideas how to fix it properly.

> It is a proposed fix for bug 317066. The fix is a very simple one-liner setting FullViewportUpdate mode for FdoGraphicsWidget. I'm aware FullViewportUpdate has negative performance impact but I also know it efficiently leaves out any graphical glitches happening due to no repaint of widget when necessary (which is what the bug is about). I have tested my solution for a couple of days: the bug no longer reproduced and I also didn't see any noticeable performance problems. I'm still not sure what I propose is acceptable since it may seem like a hack to more experienced developers, however I just didn't want my patch attempt to get lost and forgotten in the bugzilla. Please have a look and decide whether the patch is good enough to be applied to the next bugfixing release of KDE 4.x series, thank you.
