Missing icons in the traybar after explorer.exe restart

If for some reasons I have to restart explorer.exe and I had HWinfo32 iconified with sensors tray-icons they simply disappear and I'm unable to open HWinfo32 window anymore. All I can do is killing the task and restart it.

Repro steps:
1. run HWInfo32 and iconify it in the traybar with temperature sensor icons too ("Minimize all...")
2. kill and restart explorer.exe

I see other programs can restore their icons in the traybar after explorer.exe has been restarted.

Well, this is a bit unusual 'bug' and I wouldn't necessary say it's a HWiNFO32 bug ;) But I'll investigate it...

You're right, it's a bug (in Windows?) common to many apps that place their icons in the traybar, but some others don't suffer this so I'm almost sure there is at least a workaround to avoid this annoying situation.
Thank you for your support! I'm recommending HWiNFO to all my friends! ;)
