Kernel 3.2.0-29: Network-Manager icon no longer shows signal strength

Bug Description

Although I'm connected to the internet wirelessly, the wireless strength indicator in my notification panel is greyed out. And if I click on it no access points are being displayed. The connection itself is OK, no problems there.

This happens only when I boot from kernel 3.2.0-29, and not when I boot from the previous kernel 3.2.0-27.

See the attached zip file with the output of lshw and screenshots of the desktop panel view in *-29 and *-27.
