Comment 13 for bug 1714804

Ubuntu has used Gnome by default for every version since 2004. This bug has nothing to do with “non-native applications”.

In Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10, Ubuntu’s Gnome presented app indicators in indicator-applet.

From 11.04 to 17.04, Ubuntu’s Gnome presented app indicators in the Unity shell.

In 17.10 and later, Ubuntu’s Gnome presented app indicators in a Gnome Shell extension, gnome-shell-extension-appindicator.

If the Gnome Shell extension has a problem presenting an app indicator the same way the previous two implementations did, that’s a problem with the extension, not with the indicator. Probably the same bug occurs whenever any other app indicator tries to use non-square dimensions.
