I've created a small Python script with a dummy indicator (that is big and red) so that hopefully people can identify if it is being shown.

I can reproduce this right now on the Xubuntu utopic daily snapshot (20140917) when I don't have the Indicator Plugin added to my Xfce panel.

I also saw the same problem on by Xubuntu trusty system back in July.
