Related project: Epiphany.
When a download is started in the Epiphany browser an icon appears in the notification area ( www.kryogenix.org/days/wp-content/uploads/2008/01/epiphany-download-icon.png ) and a "Downloads" window pops up with this as its window icon.
I think that instead of showing a misleading image of a half-filled progress bar it should have an actual progress bar. Similar things can be seen in the battery monitor, network manager, volume control (such a tiny progress bar would only have a few states, which could be images) and in the window icons for copying files (and I think burning CDs too).
