no, I don't. I wonder if another XFCE user experienced the same thing?
As long as I start Zim using the zim-clip, all the notebooks I open
use a unique tray icon.

But, if I open a Zim notebook first, and then use the Zim-clip addon; it
creates another instance of the tray icon. I can left click (to see all
the open notebooks)/right click (to open another notebook) on the
zim-clip tray icon (the second one), but I can't left/right click on the
zim tray icon (the first instance) anymore.

What I usually do, is to close the first tray icon.

Rui doesn't see that on Gnome 3. It's a minor annoyance, and I don't
know if it is related to the Xfce panel or a configuration?
