[winswitch] Icon not appearing

Just installed winswitch on ubuntu 10.10.  Installed patch to fix 100% cpu
problem, since if that wasn't fixed, I couldn't use it anyway.

Did "dumb user" thing and clicked on "Window Switch" in Applications menu.
It came up, said it found only one server (the local one).

There's no Windows Switch icon anywhere I can see to get any menus!

"ps -ef | egrep win" shows:

/usr/bin/winswitch_applet --open_server_config=

/usr/bin/winswitch_server --daemon --print-pid
madsen   29132     1  0 14:56 ?        00:00:00 /usr/bin/Xvnc :62 -desktop
 +extension RANDR -once -br -rfbport 16062 -rfbauth

If I click on it again, I get a box saying it's already running.

None of the topics under help on the web pages seemed to apply.

Note that this was happening prior to cpu usage patch as well.
