Bug Description

The count indicator currently stays the same size irrespective of whether it is displaying one or two digits.

Desired solution:
If the count indicator only displays one digit it should be a circle e.g (7)
If the count indicator displays two digits it should be a lozenge shape e.g. two half circles joined by two straight lines e.g. (27)
If the count indicator displays three digits it should be a lozenge shape e.g. two half circles joined by two straight lines e.g (527)

I think it's because launcher is rendered using nux, not gtk.

@Marco
Launcher doesn't use nux widget and we already use gtk/gdk function to get the icon pixbuf.
