Did you actually try implementing the kludge? I attempting to do so in a
couple of ways, and in the best case scenario, I got a space in the tray
where the icon should be, and although I could click it and have HipChat
vanish and re-appear, there was no actual icon shown. I tried running
HipChat with stalonetray, and there was no icon. I did the same with
trayer, and a thin black line appeared where the icon should be, but as
with my attempt to implement stalonetray's kludge, there was no picture.
Searching a bit, I came across this long-standing issue on the HipChat
