Public bug reported:

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

With the ubuntu-artwork=7 these flash between black and intense orange.
This contrast is very large and combined with the increased area of the
indicators means that the display is overly distracting.

Ideally the sudden change should be toned down and the visible
difference between states decreased, for instance, alternating between a
50% orange and 100% intense orange instead of between black and strong
