--- Comment #1 from Shai Berger <shai at platonix.com> ---
I disagree -- the "override", as far as I understand it, does not change the
program state, but just allows the single requested action to access the
network in spite of the program state. In other words, the ticket expresses an
assumption that the override changes the whole program state for a limited
time, but that assumption is, as far as I understand, incorrect.

If I'm right, the icon displaying the mode as "offline" is still correct even
during the overriding operation (e.g -- just because you're allowing a message
to be sent, doesn't mean an automatic mail fetch can be triggered -- that other
operation is still blocked by the "offline" state).

The fact that an "online operation" is being carried out is presented clearly
enough by progress bars, and in the case of sending messages, even a separate
dialog box.

Therefore, I suggest this ticket be closed as "invalid".
