Hide Inactive Icons Problem

When I have 'Hide Inactive Icons' enabled for the system tray notifiction
area, sometimes the arrow that hides the icons disappears and there is no way
to access the system tray. This happens when I expand the tray by clicking
the arrow, then click on a program that was previously hidden. When the
arrow reverts back to hiding the icons, it goes away and leaves a square in
its place that is unclickable.

In short, icons that are hidden using this feature remain hidden forever
until I restart my computer.
