To set the "Notification Area" preference to 'never' by default.

As far as I can see, that bug is about making better looking icons,
rather than improving the way which icons tell the user how much battery

unwillingness to understand the importance of that. Maybe I've
misunderstood the changes made. Thanks for pointing the bug out, any
