In F17, and since F16 actually IIRC, there is no network-manager-applet
running; gnome-shell provides the built-in network status icon and menu,
which will only be shown if NetworkManager is running.

If you stop the NetworkManager service you will effectively be stopping
NetworkManager itself, not just the applet.
