I am referring to the same thing.  The Task panel is named Task Manager.
After I close an application, the space it would take on the panel remains
and the icon changes to the X no icon image (I think it's the xorg
icon/logo).  After this happens, the only way to get rid of it is to open
and close another application or to wait a long time.

Do you think Desktop Search, Nepomnk or akonadi would have anything to do
with this?  I had them disabled for a long time then enabled them after the
4.7 update since I was constantly being nagged about them being disabled.
Would rather not have them at all in my opinion.

Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why its called the present.
