[xubuntu-users] More 14.04 Indicator insanity

The indicator seems to be a real mess after in-situ upgrade from 13.10 to

First, I had the 'vanishing' network manager indicator reported by others.
One user suggested installing the XFCE-Goodies package from the new
repository, which I did.  That brought back the network manager indicator,
seemingly successfully.  It has remained in place for a number of
sessions/boots, and is there currently.

Now, however, after just booting up the machine to read mail, the Audio
Volume Control speaker icon indcator is GONE, AND I now have TWO battery
indicator icons!!

One battery indicator has a mouse-over popup battery status message, and
the icon itself shows (correctly) a partly discharged battery
proportionately filled in.  The other shows a full battery, and also
requires a click to see information, where it also reports the same
(correct) partly discharged condition percentage.

Looking at the output of 'ps', it shows a single "indicator-power-service"
running, but 2 different icons are visible.

It also shows a single indicator-sound-service process running with no
speaker indicator.

Help, please!
