edit: clicking the tray icon minimizes XChat.
I use XChat every day and it used to minimize to the system tray on Mint 13, however I've noticed now in 14 for a number of weeks, it doesn't.
Minimizing it minimizes it like a normal window, and closing it will just close XChat with no confirmation. The tray icon is there, but once I close XChat, the icon no longer works and disappears after a few seconds. The system tray applet is enabled, and all other icons show there (Dropbox, WhatPulse, Skype).
I've tried deleting all configuration files and restarting XChat, however the same thing happens.
Anyone able to help? XChat is very important for me on a daily basis, but having it minimized like a normal window when I may necessarily not need it, can be a bit annoying.
