      Suit yourself ;-) but when I deliberately crash Explorer (in Win2K); of
      the twenty-five icons normally in sysTray (five of which I hide with
      TrayManager in normal usage) only seven or eight still show up
      afterwards. When I use TrayManager - they all come back.

      That's a lot of software authors you'll have to convince to make the
      "trivial" fix to their otherwise correctly running programs. Let us know
      how you make out!
