@lutoma I had similar issues last week where systray icons of gtk programs didn't redraw their respective transparent parts with the background colour. It turned out that gtk had changed the way they do systray icons and no longer set the correct window inheritance flags. A downgrade to libgtk-3.22 luckily got rid of this.
Buuut I guess your setup is not gtk-based, so this probably doesn't help you…
