The system tray is not conveyed through Wayland in the first place (it goes 
through D-Bus), so any issues you may be facing aren't Wayland. It's possible 
the SNI implementation you've got access to is broken and system trays work on 
X11 because it falls back to the old XEmbed. It might also be an issue with 
your specific desktop of choice.

Either way, the system tray is not a Wayland issue. I recommend treating it as 
a regular bug and working with the implementation's and desktop's developers 
to fix it.
