It would be nice if we could get Tridia to include this modification in
their source (with a switch to activate, of course) as we seem to get fairly
regular requests on this issue (and it would be nice if it was
cross-platform, not just for Windows).

Assuming Windows, the system tray icon turns black when a connection is in
progress.  There is also a modified version available which actually pops
up a dialog asking for confirmation before the session is initiated.
