This happens when you start it up before the systray has had a chance to initialize. Just move it to later in your configuration, or put a sleep in your startup script to wait a couple of seconds before trying to start.

Also I hate this trouble when using Cairo Dock because I didn't have a system tray turned on. So make sure that's not you too.
