Garbled applet icon

Description of problem:

In the current version of Workrave on Gnome 3, the applet appears only in the legacy notification area bottom bar. The applet icon is also garbled.

Newer versions of Workrave, in the 1.9.90x series, have a true gnome-shell applet. Although these are somewhat experimental, they're stable enough that both Debian testing and Ubuntu 12.10 include these versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): workrave-1.9.4-5.fc17.x86_64
