           Summary: System tray does not show on new monitor when applying
                    dual screen
           Product: kde
           Version: 4.6
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: unassigned-bugs at kde.org
        ReportedBy: osaka85+kde at gmail.com

Version:           4.6 (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

When enabling my second monitor via nvidia settings (and setting the new one to
primary), the System Tray will disappear, or is hidden (due to smaller
resolution?). The panel will show correctly other than this lack of system

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
On nvidia settings, X Server Dispaly Configuration option:
have second monitor selected (should say disabled). Set for twinview mode.
Select option "Make this the primary display for hte X screen".

Actual Results:  
KDE panel will change to second monitor as intended. However system tray will
not appear. Unsure if this is due to lack of screen space or if it does not
actually show up. Either way, perhaps if it could find the right border of the
new screen and line up, if this is just a lack of space issue.

Expected Results:  
KDE panel (and Desktop, widgets, etc.) should move to new monitor, along with
the system tray showing up on the bottom panel (this is the only part that
seems not to work).
