[Bug 527267] Re: Application Indicators too wide


@cablop, yes, it looks like m0sia only has the patched indicator-applet
compiled for lucid, but not maverick, which I'd love to see.

By the way, even as more stuff seems to be migrating to indicator-
applet, both this spacing bug and the inability to customize its
contents is, and always has been, enough to make me give it the axe. I
have no need for the volume icon. I only lament that now libnotify-
mozilla won't leave a visible indicator in the system tray when I have
new mail in Thunderbird. Windows XP is a more advanced operating system
in this respect. Zing! See Bug #1.

I'd like to remind those interested to sign Ivan Fomichev's petition to
the SABDFL at http://www.petitiononline.com/buntubug/petition.html

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.
