The only patch I see is a change to the default system icon size, from 22
pixels to 16 pixels.  The system tray has always (confirmed on 3.5.12, and
probably works on earlier versions than this) been able to expand to
multiple rows if sufficient vertical height was given to it.

To change your system tray icon size:
KControl->Appearance and Themes->Icons->Advanced->System Tray Icons
