Ticket #5459 (closed defect: duplicate)
second circle in sugar home view provides false information

Interface : Currently two circles can still show up in sugar, one indicating a connection to an access point, and another with the name of a mesh channel. Are we actually connecting to both? The access point indicates which mesh channel it is connecting over, and yanni suggests the mesh-circle contains no useful extra data; when the mesh channel listed for the gray mesh circle is different from the channel in the metadata for the access point, the latter is correct.
To reproduce : when you connect to a mesh that has no school server, the icon will blink for a long time. within this window, if you connect to an access point, the mesh circle will continue to blink in the mesh view, and a gray circle for that mesh channel will show up below the donut, even as the access point connects.
This makes some users think they can select both a mesh and an access point (when one will usually knock you off of the other), and makes it harder to debug network issues.
