[Bug 527267] Re: Application Indicators too wide


Ok, this is fine, but why not setting the default value for the
indicator horizontal padding to a more reasonable value directly in its
sources instead of waiting that every available theme would adapt to it
(and we all know that we can't wai that)... So I think that by default
the indicator should use a correct padding also if the used gtkrc is not
considering it, then if you want to change (increase) it, edit your
gtkrc file! This should be the way, not the current one.

Bug description:
the Application Indicators applet is wider than the regular systray.

3 Indicators icons are slightly bigger than 4 tray icons, incl. the left part.
See the screenshot. The two highlighted boxes are ~100 pixels wide.

With more applications moving to the app indicator, it will result in less usable space in the panel, which in my case is already pretty full.
