[SRU] Fix size of input-keyboard.svg to prevent IBus indicator from random blinking in GNOME Shell

Bug Description

In Ubuntu 12.04 with Gnome Shell.

ibus is one of the most popular input method frameworks used in CJK environments. while switching from CJK inputing to English, the icon in the status area blinks a few times(enlarging, shrinking, etc.)

This is caused by a flawed icon file, /usr/share/icons/ubuntu-mono-dark/status/22/input-keyboard.svg

the one shipped with Ubuntu 12.04 has the problem that the size is 22x23, after modifying it to 22x22, the problem gets solved. I have attached my modified version of input-keyboard.svg

Is the issue fixed in Saucy? If no, that needs to be done first. Please submit a merge proposal against lp:ubuntu-themes.

This has now been fixed in Saucy by removing the input-keyboard icon since it was unneeded and caused an issue in gnome-control-center.
