indicator location is hidden when toggling location detection with gps disabled

Bug Description

Using rtm #113 (wiped)

Reproduce: always

1. Pull down location indicator
2. Disable GPS
3. Toggle location detection

What happens:
The location indicator goes away (network indicator is given focus)

What should have happened:
The location indicator should not go away

If the indicator is killed, this has consequences for e.g. Ubuntu System Settings, which uses the indicator's org.gtk.Menus interface to see if location detection is on or not.

I commented in that this is a general issue where we are not implementing the intended indicator experience - the indicator and menu option is supposed to remain when the icon is removed.

The indicator menu no longer contains a GPS switch, and per bug 1533837, System Settings soon won't either. Is there an alternative way of reproducing this bug?
