Bug Description

After upgrade from Lubuntu 17.04 to 17.10, the taskbar has 2 icons for managing the network. Both bring up the same menu with a slight difference. For the icon on the left, the menu item for "Enable Networking" has a checkmark in a box, while the icon on the right has a blue square in a box.

If I delete the /home/user/.config directory, a new one is created and the GUI has one network icon. If I log out, wait a little and log back in, the extra icon will be gone. Reboot, and the 2 icons are back.
