I wonder if such bug could not be assigned to "ftp.debian.org, xfce4-systray".

I did not do that. I looked at the testing propagation stats and saw
that xfce4-systray was not moving to testing without apparent reason (no
RC bug, no missing binary etc.) so I investigated and filled this report.

Now, I am not very experimented with checking testing propagation, but
certainly if packages that _must not_ move to testing all carried a
RC bug, it would be much easier to spot packages needing "hints", and
it is always smarter to allow less experimented people to deal with the
