Some Linux desktop environments allow to use more than a single desktop.
Currently, the tray icon of sylpheed can only be used to un-iconify the application window on exactly the desktop it was iconified on.

Attached patch fixes this behaviour so the window can be iconified/uniconified on any desktop. the technique was borrowed from xchat2.

The patch was already added to sabotage linux, other distributions might be interested too. https://github.com/sabotage-linux/sabotage/blob/e0a6ef74ee07f3bca584f633647fd32224cfd509/KEEP/sylpheed-trayicon.patch

The patch has been sent to the english sylpheed mailing list, yet it doesn't show up there.
