Bug Description

When one of the applications in the messaging menu requests your attention, the menu title is highlighted. But when you open the menu, it's not obvious which application made the request.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MessagingMenu#applications>: "And if the application has set draw-attention, the triangle, application name, and any count should all be the same color as the envelope."
