Missing taskbar icons in win7 when disconnecting HDMI

I am using dual screen in win7 with DF and I find when I disconnect the secondary screen where the smart taskbar is, not all the windows appear on the main taskbar again. This has happened to powerpoint windows, adobe acrobat, and other applications.

Anyone else seeing this?

Does this happen every time, or just occasionally? Does it happen if you manually disable the multi-monitor taskbars before disconnecting the HDMI cable?

It happens even when I disable the external monitor using windows control panel. Some applications are missing but not all. I can still see them using ALT-TAB.

It seems like Win 7 does not know how to bring back icons but i don't know if this is due to DF or Windows or not. I don't think I had this issue using Ultramon so it leads me to believe that DF is causing some of this.

I'll check this out before the 3.2 release, but unfortunately it's too late to squeeze into the 3.1.6 release. Thanks!

I think I've fixed the problem for the 3.1.7 release. I'll be releasing a public beta in the next couple of weeks, and you can give it a try when it comes out.
