Would be nice to finally see this fixed across all Ubuntu flavors, but maybe that's not possible due to different approaches (panels).

Occurs for me on live session and installed versions of release Xubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver. Two network icons are displayed, both functional.

When I restart the Xfce Panel (xfce4-panel --restart), one of the two duplicate icons goes away but it comes back especially when I resume the system after suspend.

Also present on Lubuntu 18.04 (from a 16.04 upgrade, at least).

Pascal A. (pascalav) wrote :

Maybe an hint:
  - The first network icon has no sections horizontal bar UI-delimiters (e.g. between the 'Wifi' and 'Mobile broadband' sections)
  - The second network icon has those UI-delimiters

This happens on Xubuntu and UbuntuMATE variants of 18.04.01 LTS too, its high time that this needs a resolution.
