I've been wondering for some time what it means when the GSM signal
strength icon goes red, and whether/how that's different from the icon
disappearing altogether, and whether/how either of those are related to
modem crashes.

After consulting the code, I see that:

- disappeared completely => 0% signal strength
- all red => 1-20% signal strength
- 1 blue bar => 21-40%
- 2 blue bars => 41-60%
- 3 blue bars => 61-80%
- 4 blue bars => 81-100%

Now that I know that, I suggest that the all red icon is quite
unintuitive, and that it would be more intuitive if changed to the same
grey colour as used in the blue bar icons.
