I ended up solving my systray problems by writing a patch that treats
systray applications as special windows. I've attached the patch to this
email, but I wrote the patch on top of my existing patch set, so it will
not apply cleanly to dwm 6.x without some work. It's a bit kludgey, and
the patch was hastily cobbled together, but I will probably refine it
later. I first used the patch with trayer, but trayer [does not allow
you to specify the amount of padding between icons][1], and the default
padding is [way too thin for my tastes. On top of that, I ran into
[Debian Bug #749031][2] which is a non-issue with stalonetray.

Here's the stalonetray invocation I'm currently using:

    stalonetray -bg '#000000' -d --icon-gravity NE --grow-gravity E \
        --skip-taskbar --window-layer top -i 16 \
        --kludges force_icons_size --decorations none \
        --geometry 1x1-0+0 --slot-size 18
