It's easy to confuse the file operation panel icon with the mouse pointer

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-mono

Now that the user-home icon in the launcher finally no longer contains a mouse pointer, a new panel icon showing _just_ a pointer has been introduced for file operations (to reproduce, copy any larger file from a to b).

What is this pointer supposed to tell me? "Click here"?

IMO it's too confusing, screenshot attached.

The screenshot added doesn't seem to work for me, so I've reuploaded a screenshot with the problem, the file transfer indicator icon is the mouse icon, second from the left (and the fact that one actually has to point that out should prove that it's not really a suitable icon for a file transfer indicator).

I agree... Previous icon of nautilus file manager was better
