Mint 13 with Cinnamon mystery icon in panel

Post by krustybaguette »

I've encountered a "mystery icon" that appears in my panel after transferring files from my laptop to my Android tablet via Bluetooth. click BT icon/Send files to device/select file/select device to send to. So it obviously has something to do with BT but once it appears in my panel it won't go away, won't perform any function via right or left click, and provides no specific information, such as a "BT File transfer has succeeded." The only way it goes away is if I shut my laptop down and reboot. It's not really a problem, just a mysterious nuisance.

Here's a picture of a small portion of my desktop panel [url=http://s1198.removed/user/krustybaguette/media/Parts%20Department/blueicon.png.html][img]http://i1198.removed/albums/aa442/krustybaguette/Parts%20Department/blueicon.png[/img][/url]

It's not as though it's doing anything so why is it there? BTW, it's the third (blue) icon from the left.

Just guessing here as is the Bluetooth applet.

And if you aren't using in Bluetooth devices then just sits there monitoring.
Waiting for a Bluetooth device to be activated?

Just guessing here.
And if you aren't using any bluetooth devices then think you could remove it from the panel.
