Bug Description

In raring I used to be able to focus indicator-sound and then down-arrow to the volume, and then left/right arrow the volume up and down.

In saucy the left/right arrows, instead of adjusting the volume, moves to the indicator to the right (clock) or left (battery) of the volume indicator.

Now I am getting RSI from reaching for the far-away and difficult-to-press volume adjusting keys on the Dell Latitude E5400.

The left/right arrow keys should only switch indicators if I have not descended into the indicator submenu with the down arrow.

Note in the clock indicator, going with the down arrow into the monthly calendar, the left/right arrows correctly move through the calendar days, instead of switching to another indicator.
