Public bug reported:

Affects: gnome-panel (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

It would be nice if the application icons shown in the Gnome systray would be
arranged in rows when the panel size is big enough.

If you size the panel for example to 75 pixels the application list gets 3 rows
but the application icons in the systray stay arranged in one row - that's wasted horizontal space.

That means they use more horizontal space than if they would be arranged in 2
or 3 rows like the applications in the application list applet.

See attached screenshot.
