Repeating is not an issue. Long threads promote forgetfulness. But I
didn't forget. I'm just hazarding a guess that whatever the root cause
is, changing those settings might get rid of the extra icon. That, in
turn, gives a hint that might be useful. If it doesn't fix it, it also
provides some help by eliminating some things... I hope.

I'm still hoping that the scan of the dmesg or messages log, in
conjunction with a look a udev stuff might reveal the cause.

The settings suggestion was just a stab at getting rid of the icon,
which was your stated goal.
