  Well, ok, to make it clear:
  - download beta4
  - install beta4 (requests to uninstall beta3 first)
  - start beta4 (from the installer itself)
  - miss notification icon
  - notice the app can be bring up by relaunching
  - try to minimize again, no way, still missing
  - end tests (I have to work at work, you know...)
  - work ends, shutdown the computer (weekend yay!)
  - switch on the computer (Monday again :-S)
  - start sylpheed
  - icon is there, mail the list...

  I wasn't aware of any notification area bug, but doesn't surprise me.

  Anyway this behaviour of Sylpheed didn't happened not in the beta1 ->
beta2 neither in the beta2 -> beta3, hence my report.
