Hmm, but it is running though or else you wouldn't be having problems of 
course. Have you got the KDE panel (aka "kicker") running or are you using 
something different under FVWM?

If you are running kicker, try killing the klipper process and then restart 
it from 'K -> Utilities -> Cut & Paste History'
Does that get the icon back into the system tray?
Do the keyboard sequences for klipper work, even if you can't get the icon

That's a shame. It could definitely be to do with FVWM though. The window 
manager probably has to be "Window Manager Specification" compliant
Looking at it seems that the support is in the 2.5 
development branch, but not in the 2.4 stable branch.
