today I added a couple of indicators to my gnome-shell panel, like Skype, weather and some sensors. The problem that I'm facing is that indicators that take a considerable amount of space, like the clock (that is showing the time and date) shrank considerably.

I realized that the total amount of space occupied by all these indicators never exceeds 50% of my screen width.

I'd like to avoid this behavior, and allow each indicator to take the space it needs.

Please, see image!

Also note how the clock is no longer in the middle, but now it's on the right corner.
