Bug ID: 400855
Summary: Clicks on the K-Menu in a vertical panel activate
programs with tray icons
Product: plasmashell
Version: 5.13.5
Platform: Ubuntu Packages
OS: Linux
Severity: normal
Priority: NOR
Component: Panel
Assignee: plasma-***@kde.org
Reporter: ***@laxu.de
Target Milestone: 1.0

When using a vertical panel with the following layout:
- K-Menu (the default one with categories on the left)
- Icons-only-Taskbar
- Systray
- Workspace Switcher
- Clock

Clicking the Menu button in the upper left quarter activates a program in the
systray. The button and the corresponding systray icon have about 650px between
them and the icon-only-taskbar.
The activated programs are different, I had the problem with tvbrowser (java)
and pidigin (gtk), I am not sure if it affects only a certain kind of
trayicons. Possibly these programs have trayicons using the older standard.

(available in About System)
KDE Plasma Version: 5.13.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.50.0
Qt Version: 5.11.1

The ubuntu version is 18.10 "cosmic".
The problems happened less often in debian buster (currently testing branch),
which also has plasma-workspace 5.13.5.
I had this problem a long time in earlier ubuntu versions as well, so it may
depend on the way KDE is built/packaged.
