Re: what do the two lights on NM tray icon mean?

I think it's basically:

Bottom left: local station attempting to authenticate; then making DHCP request.
Top right: DHCP response received, interface configured.

There are two lights on NM tray icon when trying to connect to a network. One is at the bottom left corner of the icon. Another is at the top right of the icon. And there is a stuff circulating among those two. Generally the bottom left one turns to green before the top right one. After the connection is established, this icon turns back to a status icon. Can someone tell what do those two lights mean?
