docker swallows system tray applications, such as IM clients, volume
controllers, etc.:


Both lal and docker are dockapps which means they will work with the
built-in "dock" without the need of a 3rd party panel.  You can see
these both in action in a few of my more recent screenshots:

As mentioned, the Openbox autostart.sh is the perfect place for
launching these.  See the Openbox website for full details.  You'll
need to be running openbox-session in order for this to work.  If you
simply run 'openbox' or are using openbox with GNOME/KDE then you'll
need to use the autostart features of those environments.
