Because of the placement of the wireless icon it makes me think the panel is too large and it's just re-painting the panel graphics multiple times.

Just for the record, this is only affects Ubuntu. I have tested Ubuntu GNOME, Lubuntu, Xubuntu (Saucy) and this issue does not exist. So, it seems it is Ubuntu Related ONLY.

Thank you!
