I've seen this too, it comes and goes.  Sometimes NM's icon is OK, sometimes 
it's the box placeholder.  Right now, it's showing me the two computer LAN 
icon.  NM always works underneath the broken icon, so the issue has not 
bothered me much.  I'm also running my kicker at 32 pixel height.  

I've also had problems with some other systray stuff.   XFCE4's power manager, 
for example, takes up three or four icons worth of space.  Pigeon is one of 
the few non KDE applications that works perfectly.  KDE 4 Kopete has never 
properly animated the icon.  There seems to be some new Dbus based messaging 
system that people are moving to at the cost of normal systray behavior.

I intentionally start nm-applet because it has worked well for me.  I look 
forward to trying the Trinity version of Network Manager.
