Have you made sure that the tray icon features are disabled? If they are
enabled (and I assume Ubuntu 11.10 does not have a systray area
anymore), you won't be able to see gPodder. It's better to disable all
the tray icon features for gPodder (see ~/.config/gpodder/gpodder.conf)
if you are using Ubuntu >= 11.04, since from that version, the tray icon
is (as far as I know) not correctly supported.

This is how it is supposed to work ;)

Should not be a problem, but it is a very good idea to upgrade to 2.19
or at lesat 2.18 to get all the latest fixes.
