Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Some sort of panel icon is leaving white boxes behind in the Unity panel. I think that this might be the "I am indexing" tracker icon, but I'm not sure; I've seen that appear and disappear, but I've never managed to see anything actually die and leave the white box. See attached screenshot.

Using this as a tracker to make sure it doesn't happen in latest Unity when we get panel support.
