Which LiveCD image were you using? Shortly after seeing this test day on the mailing list, I went and grabbed the x86_64 image, dated 2009-08-10. There's a different one on the Test Day page now, dated 2009-08-11. I know there was mention of this notification-area-applet problem, with instructions to stop it and restart it, but I tried that and it didn't help. That was with the old image; I haven't tried the newer one yet.
I can confirm with yesterday's rawhide written to USB flash drive. (And it's not the recent GTK2+ bug.)
From the screenshot, it almost certainly is. Note the distinctive white boxes in the panel. Also note that the console grep command is incorrect: the applet's process name is 'nm-applet', so it would not show up if you grep for 'Network'.
Please test in more detail and confirm whether the nm-applet process is running, and whether this works with gtk2-2.17.7-1.fc12 or higher. If it does, this is a dupe of 510249.

Mmm. Maybe. For me it was Rawhide day or two before that LiveCD burned to USB key and the nm-applet definitely was missing but - nowadays having updated Rawhide on the disk, it works for me.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
