wmii does not understand system tray icon-specific apps. They
are broken by design. Anyway, if the app you're using has a sane
remote interface you can create a new bar label for it, ie:

i=`{wmiir read /bar/new}
wmiir write /bar/$i/data 'notes'
wmiir write /bar/$i/b1press '<program args to show up the notes>'

(You can add this to wmiirc for example)
