Description of problem:
In the Gnome, when you open a program requiring root administrative
priviledges, and you fill out the root password to gain them, you then
get the "keys" icon <keyring.png> down in the system tray to inform
you they are present.
I thought it might be an idea in the case of root priviledges to use
the root "shield" icon <root-password.png> in the system tray instead,
in a move to make the shield symbolize allthingsroot a bit more.
This would match the usage of the "shield" graphic to represent root
in the root password change app in "Hat>>System Settings>>Root
Password", and maybe work better in the context of the change to a
keys icon for the general user password change app (RFE 117166)...
Just a suggestion, what do we think?

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a program requiring root administrative priviledges in Gnome.
2.Check out <keyring.png> icon that appears in the system tray
representing root priviledges.
3.Consider possibly swapping this for the root shield logo
<root-password.png> to represent it instead.
