I have not had any luck making it appear or disappear at will, although right now I cannot make it appear at all.  So supposedly this will be "fixed" in revision 3.

Isn't this just a matter of running the VNC server as a user program or
as a service? (user prog. -> icon visible, service -> icon not visible).
