The issue seems like that different libgee version are being loaded by different panels, assigning to Laney he was having a go at building that source with the new libgee that seems to resolve the issue

This bug was fixed in the package activity-log-manager - 0.9.7-0ubuntu12

activity-log-manager (0.9.7-0ubuntu12) trusty; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/10_build-with-gee-0.8.patch: Port to gee 0.8 API to avoid
    loading two gee versions in the same process (LP: #1293036)
  * 01_really_hide_automatic_reports.patch: Delete, this is obsolete given
    03_use_libwhoopsie-preferences.patch. Add 13_hide_automatic_reports.patch
    to achieve this with that new patch. (LP: #1203042)
  * 11_make_all_widgets_sensitive.patch: Recursively make all widgets
    sensitive/insensitive when we need to, to avoid missing some.
  * 12_hide_lock_unlock_button.patch: Hide Lock button when it doesn't do
    anything (when the user can't drop the permissions). (LP: #1239752)
  * 14_seconds_combo.patch: Make the entries translatable. (LP: #1235627)
