Bug Description

Using a fully patched 22.04 system (after a reformat), I am having problems with several of the applications that are minimized to the system tray.

The problem is mostly with: signal-desktop, keepassx, tutanota mail and telegram.

Oddly enough hexchat does not give this problem.

The problem is that everytime I minimized a window back into the tray that when I click back on it to put it back on the foreground that it does not do anything. I need to re-minimize it and then re-toggle it for it to come back so I can see and use it.

For example:
1. use telegram;
2. minimize telegram;
3. clicking on telegram icon in system tray then select "open telegram" = nothing happens.
4. clicking a 2nd time on the telegram icon in the system tray now shows me the options: "minimize to tray, enable notifications & quit telegram". Hence it shows the options as if the focus would be on the screen but it is nowhere displayed on my desktop;
5. selecting "minimize to tray" and re-re-clicking on the telegram tray icon again shows me "open telegram, enable notifs & quit" AND brings back the telegram window on the foreground.
6. When I minimize the application it brings back to the same state of point #3.

Same problem w/ keepassx:
1. open keepassx -> tools menu -> settings -> general -> check "hide window to system tray when minimized";
2. copy a password off keepassx = keepassx dissapears under the system tray;
3. clicking on the keepassx tray icon shows "toggle window and quit";
4. selecting "toggle window" = keepassx window stays hidden;
5. I need to do this twice everytime I wish to use this application.

Nota bene: this behavior seems to happen some time after I started using X. For example immediately after a reboot, minimize and maximizes off tray will work. But after I opened a couple of window (Firefox, terminator, caja, etc) then it starts to manifest as I described it.

UPDATE: ovpn desktop client also does this problem (https://www.ovpn.com/en/guides/ubuntu)
