Minor but annoying Amarok behavior
Also, is Amarok a memory hog? I like all of the extra functionality, like watching for changes in the music folders and connecting to wikipedia for artist information but it seems to me like all of those frills could take up a lot of resources. I haven't really noticed any difference in performance between when it's running and when it's not but maybe I should try another media player. I've tried both Banshee and XMMS and prefer Amarok to them but maybe there's another one out there that I would like just as much. Thanks.

Clicking the tray icon will open amarok in the current workspace, this is regardless of DE/WM. Is this what you are talking about?
With regard to it being a hog, I don't think it uses any resources beyond what it needs to offer the functionality it does. There used to be problems with CPU usage when scanning but this has been largely reined in. Scanning is at a minimum beyond the initial collection build. I think they are even using kernel inode calls to see file changes now.
