      ros TRUNK r68169
      ros explorer_new (run on Windows XP or reactos)

      Description

      it does not matter whether you do this from reactos or from windows xp sp3:
      therefore it's 100% sure that this issue is within explorer_new.exe binary:

      start miranda im (i used 0.9.44, but shouldn't matter)
      you will notice a systray icon in tray

      now kill explorer_new.exe and restart it.

      The icon will not come back.
      When you do the same with ms-explorer.exe it will always restore the icon.

      ----------------------------------------
      Interestingly ms-explorer always fails at some other icons, which explorer_new always can restore (e.g. WinVNC-server 1.3.10).

      Therefore it's pretty obvious ms-explorer and explorer_new use different techniques (messages) to detect running application-icons and restore their icons upon explorer-startup.

      Try to find out how ms-explorer does it and implement in explorer_new too (additionally to the current approach).

      That way we could have a really good solution, even better than MS^^
