Bug Description

Possibly this is related to lp:1227250 , which I see is freshly fixed; I'm on build 99 (20131015.2), and I've seen this in earlier builds although I haven't been able to reproduce it (and am not confident of these conditions now :( ). With these caveats, I'll attach a screenshot.

The label for the brightness indicator appears (unreliably) inside the slider--is this intentional?

Will verify in released image tomw.

This is both unity8 and indicator-power issue.

indicator-power shouldn't be setting a "Brightness" label for the items it doesn't want to have a label.
There is also a bug in unity8 slider item which isn't giving the correct width for the sliders which have a label.

  * We really only need to keep a handful of properties up-to-date for
    each upower device. Given that upower requires us to refetch all
    properties with GetAll whenever it signals that it's changed, we
    really don't need to keep bus proxies alive for each device.
    Removing the autogenerated proxy code and just using a couple of the
    direct GDBusConnection API calls cuts out some unnecessary overhead
    according to health-check. See the before & after profile logs
    attached to the ticket. (LP: #1221871)
  * fix a minor memory leak that was caused by treating the variant
    returned by g_icon_serialize() as floating.
