Web Start - JNLP - System Tray Icon

I've downloaded the latest trunk from SVN, compiled it, made it working with Web Start, but I have a few bugs..


First, the icon does not show up in the system tray, so when a user closes it, they can't get it up and running again. Is there any way to get this working?


Second, for some reason this just stopped working all of a sudden. When I double click on a user in the roster, nothing happens. I finally click through enough of them that a chat window finally opens. Then, when I type a message and hit send, nothing goes through. When I use the installed client 2.5.8, everything works great. I would much prefer to use Web Start so that I can push out updates more seamlessly, but if it's a problem with Web Start security or something, then I guess I'll go back to the installed version.


Is anyone else experiencing weird stuff with Spark and Web Start?
