folder-remote is part of the fd.o spec, which would make it look better in freedesktop compliant themes.
I find that the icon is still showing like a 'wifi' icon both in the system tray/about box/window taskbar.
So i downloaded the code, and recompiled myself. Not too difficult in Xubuntu 15.10 once you've downloaded the dependencies (gtk 2 specifically etc).
Common.c line 40
icon_name = gigolo_find_icon_name("gtk-connect", "gtk-network");
gtk-connect is better for me. replace with whatever you want.
