Tray icon title

Without it, Windows doesn't seem to be able to store its state (always shown/hide, etc) in the cache. Please consider adding it. Thanks.

Infimum, thanks for the note!
We tried to add a hint for systray icon, but unfortunately simultaneously popped up hint and our menu on hover mouse over the icon looks ugly. So we add hint only when "Show menu on mouse hover" option is disabled (see http://crystalrich.com/upload/20090617135344134.png). So you can disable this option but the menu will not automatically popup on mouse hover above the systray icon.

In future versions we will try to find a fix for this problem, but it may require long investigations, because there is no direct way on how to do it given by Microsoft.

hmm... just for your information, PStart has no problem having a tray icon title with the "hover popup" on. So there has to be a way. It also enables you to directly control the visibility of the tray icon from the program's option window, which is better because it doesn't have to rely on the tray icon cache.

Sorry for the dealy with the response. Thank you for the information, however PStart displays both the menu and sytray icon hint on mouse hover, which is unappropriate for us. Let me know if you have some more information.
