Yep, I've seen these, there's a bug open for them on, but
there's on objection I have:  the "progress" icon re-uses the signal
strength bars as the progress meter, which is confusing.  If the
progress icons were re-done using the spinning balls or some other
indicator, then I'd do another eval and they might just get committed...
jimmac declined to spend time on that.
