Description of problem:
The gnome notification area currently has a fixed color, which is the default
gnome-panel background color; if you change the gnome-panel background, however,
the notification area becomes somewhat of an eyesore. A transparent background
(so it can pick up whatever the panel has) would be preferred- perhaps with some
sort of border to visually distinguish between panel icons and notification area
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add the notification area to a gnome panel.
2. Change the gnome panel's background settings to be other than default.
The notification area handle and background remain at the same color as the
default gnome panel background color.
The notification area background (and handle?) are transparent, so that changes
to the gnome panel's background carry to the notification area background.
