Yes, not only on icons, GTK must be fixed too (I see glitches everywhere).
I'll fix as many bugs as I can. Also, if you see something able to be
changed, don't hesitate to tell me.
See, I fixed the nm-applet icons because of changes on it. Julien Lavergne
told me those icons created a malfunction on Transmission. So I fixed it. I
really appreciate your feedback.
