Bug Description

Workrave is a gnome application which provides a panel applet that can include up to three timers for taking brakes on different time scales. This applet has not appeared well in the panel since Unity was introduced. The applet appears limited to one icon's worth of space. For the timers to appear correctly more horizontal space would be required.

Here's what it is supposed to look like (one timer active in the panel; three timers in a separate window):

Here's what it look's like in Unity (12.04 beta 2): (please see attachment)
