Disconnecting the openvpn connection reverts the icon back to the correct "wireless" icon.

Confirming. This is because there is no icon composition available for indicators. Options are either to build separate icons, or to use just a lock. Since I need to build new icons for another purpose already, let's start with this.

  * Re-instate animations while processing network association phases, it tends
    to be annoying and confusing without them. (LP: #694534)
  * Provide and use premade theme icons for wireless strength *with security*,
    which include the padlock already composited.
    - Enable icons in menus for wireless strength and security. (LP: #683896)
    - Re-use the same icons to notify the user that they are connected to a
      VPN-secured connection. (LP: #696442)
  * Clean up code paths for GSM and CDMA devices which still tried to create
    a custom widget to add to the menu -- replaced it with a simple image
    menu item.
  * Escape underscores in SSID names so they display with the correct name
    rather than underlining the next character (as a mnemonic).
