Ad-hoc network icon mixup

If you create an regular (non-auto-Sugar) ad-hoc network (e.g. on a non-sugar system) on channels 1, 6 or 11, it appears in Sugar's neighborhood view as the standard circle with signal level indicated by the height of the shape inside the circle (just like infrastructure networks). When you click to connect to the network, the device icon in the frame appears differently - instead of the signal level being shown, it appears with the Mayan symbol (like the auto-Sugar adhoc networks).
Not sure which representation is correct/desired, but the fact that the same network is displayed differently in the frame vs neighborhood view is a bug.
Secondly, if you create a non-auto-Sugar adhoc network on another system, on a channel that is *not* 1, 6, or 11, it will again appear on the neighborhood view like an infrastructure network, but clicking on it to create a connection results in a blank network icon in the frame. This is because it is trying to find an icon named (e.g.) network-adhoc-8.
