Hey, will anyone miss if I just comment out the Beep the systray icon makes everytime you right-click it? :)

Ain't that a feature most of users won't ever (want to) find out?

While you are at it, I say it should be optional, say, pol.cfg setting BeebOnSystrayIconRightClick 0/1. Better yet! It could be SystrayIconRightClickSound none/beeb/path_to_wav_file. O' the possibilities!

hehehe...

The first option could be done, but is there really any use for that beep? I can't find one (apart from driving me nuts when I was debugging POL Launch).

No reason to make it optional, I'm just entertaining myself with the idea.

Sorry if you already did it (you never know).

If I hadn't for a moment imagined you were being sarcastic, POL would be the new winamp by now :)

That would be a GREAT IDEA! Then I won't have to run the separate program while I'm scripting! :D

While you are pondering the system tray code, check that killing POL (ie X on the console window) still leaves the POL icon there until you mouseover it.

I'm trying to take a look at that. I learned almost all the systray bugs when trying to debug the POLLaunch ability to run POL. Can you imagine having almost 10 icons on the systray? :)

OnG that persistent ghost systray icon effect is not isolated to POL. I have several apps that do that either all the time or randomly. I think it's a Windows "feature". Maybe it is there to remind those of us who are getting old which applications we had shut down just in case we need to restart them.
