I fixed the issue Rated 4 out of 5 stars

with the OrganizeStatusbar addon. I hope that the author will use the modification for the original extension in the future. Until then you can get the fixed version here:

Otherwise useful addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.10r22b0272).
