It's the icon Eben made for the My Settings menu (formerly known as the control panel). Note that it's currently designed larger and as clean as possible for menu item placement, rather than as a toolbar icon, much like the system-search magnifying glass icon (that looks wrong as used in Wikipedia's toolbar).
Christian: maybe you want to use your 'pencil making a checkmark' idea for My Settings instead (though I think Eben may have already been down that route when finally choosing the spanner) ;-)
Oooh, I just noticed. Shouldn't the icon for Register at least be the nice school server icon (at least until we drop Register from this menu and put it where it belongs in the Neighbourhood view)? Looks like it's using the media-record icon just now.
