Comment 2 for bug 761326

If with 'wicd indicator', you mean the indicator showed in the attachment, then I think it is not an issue of wicd but it is related with unity's configuration.

Did you try to add Wicd to the whitelist of the Unity's systray panel?

This should solve your problem:
1. launch in a terminal 'dconf-editor' (you need the 'dconf-tools' package)
2. go to 'desktop' -> 'unity' -> 'panel'
3. add 'Wicd' to the 'systray-whitelist'

Let me know if this solves your problem!
