I read it, I was going to comment, but saying something along the lines of
"it is not possible" would often be unproductive and make it seem like
your problem was resolved when in reality it has not.
Why do you have the full title displayed in the taskbar rather than have
just an icon with tooltips (balloons)? This is the default behaviour in
KDE 3.1 and 3.4 (both of which I can confirm to have these settings). Have
you changed it? Am I misinterpreting the question/scenario? I have this
picture in my mind where a task bar is accommodated with words (as in the
taskbar or even default quicklauncher in Windows).
PS - I think I stupidly confused system tray and taskbar here. Have you
tried KasBar**? I prefer that to a task bar. It can easily be added and
provide you with previews as well as application icons.
