Bug#605010: /usr/bin/krandrtray: krandrtray: problem switching between configuration (external monitor plugged or not)

Package: kdebase-workspace-bin
Version: 4:4.4.5-4
Severity: important
File: /usr/bin/krandrtray
Tags: squeeze

This happens on my latptop. At my office, I connect it to an external monitor
via HDMI. At home I do not have any external monitor so I only use the laptop's
monitor (LVDS1).
With the external monitor plugged in, I managed to configure to have 2
displays, HDMI1 on the left of LVDS1 with a different size. I set a different
desktop activity on both (i.e. on HDMI1 I set a different wallpaper, and no
widgets, whereas LVDS1 is my main desktop, so it has many widgets, the task
bar, the menu launcher, etc...)

Problem number 1: HDMI1 appears as display 1, and LVDS1 as display 2. I set to
show unmanaged windows on Display 2, but windows do appear on display 1
sometimes. I could not find a pattern. The KDE startup animation (right after
the login screen) appears on display 1.

Problem number 2: if I boot without the external monitor, KDE starts with the
2nd desktop (the one that belongs to the external monitor) displayed instead of
my main desktop (the one that belongs to LVDS1). This is very annoying because
it makes the computer very difficult to use.

So it seems that KRandRTray does not detect properly what configuration to use.
So here are a few suggestions:
- I wish there was more control in KRandRTray and more help available (in the
manual, online, etc...)
- It should be possible to save several configurations, and have a way to
specify conditional rules, such as: "use config 2 if HDMI1 is connected,
otherwise use config 1"
