Q re: KMail system tray icon


I am wondering if anyone can help me with this. I enabled the feature in KMail that lets it sit in the KDE system tray. Under the "System Tray Mode" are two choices: (1) Alway show KMail in system tray, and (2) Only show KMail in system tray if there are unread messages.

I selected (2). However, once I close the KMail main window, the icon shows up in the system tray whether or not I have unread messages in my mailboxes. This is a minor nuisance, but it still bothers me as I don't want to open KMail just to check for new messages.

Does this feature actually work? Or am I doing something wrong?

I am using KMail 1.8.2 w/ KDE 3.4.2.
