I doubt it's #522953. AFAIK, the state of the applet is kept by
workrave, not the panel, so I don't see how a migration script issue
would cause this.

As for #523018, I thought about it but my notification area grows
correctly when other icons show up.
I just read the whole report and two other things make me think it's
unrelated :
 - Workrave uses GTK, not QT
 - Workave also has another icon (yeah, that's silly) which is correctly
shown. It's hidden in the screenshot I posted, but when it isn't, it
works as intended, even on 4.6.
