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).

Best wishes,


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.

**Main panel -> Content menu -> Add -> Extension -> KasBar
