Re: [dev] [wmii] Ruby wmiirc leaving space on screen without bar

Sure, I forgot to mention it: I do use wmii-hg, and the problem is with witray.
Witray appears only when there is an application in the tray (you can
tray nm-applet, or pidgin, for example). And along with witray appears
the space on the second monitor.
I had not the problem before "witrayed" versions (e.g. 3.9), and
killing witray makes the unwanted space disappeare.

I reported the bug some time ago, but got no answer nor fixes.
