[Bug 527267] Re: Application Indicators too wide


It would seem that the only way to solve this issue is to basically
write a completely new widget for the indicator applet instead of re-
using the menu widget.  I realize this is less than ideal and is no
quick fix, but in light of how big an issue this has become, I think it
would be worth it.  An icon menu really is quite a different than than a
textual menu, and so it makes sense to have a different amount of
spacing between the two.  I do not believe this would cause any
confusion among users nor a loss of consistency with other menus.

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.
