Bug Description

It seems here is a way to add a battery or a touchpad to your non-laptop system :)
Basically System Settings window adds hidden controls (for instance touchpad or battery or just the Search entry in toolbar) if you relaunch it when it's already running. The proper behavior should be raise the window, instead. Here is a video showing the issue: http://ubuntuone.com/6tERKDklQhZo0xvSlklW08

## Steps to Reproduce ##
Let assume you are on a system without a touchpad
 - launch System Settings and open Mouse and Touchpad
 - give focus to another window, keeping system setting running and showing mouse settings
 - relaunch System Settings

## Current result ##
hidden Touchpad tab appears, as well as the search entry (this one should be available only in overview mode)

## Expected Result ##
raise system settings window

## Additional Notes ##
It seems the combobox available in Appearance > Background to change the background style (fill, tile, stretch...) is now hidden. Is it a bug, isn't it?

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.

I can't reproduce this issue in my jhbuild sandbox (updated yesterdat to "release 3.2.92" git commit), so I think it's not an upstream issue, I can't file or search a non existing bug :(

I can't reproduce that bug on Oneiric either on a box which doesn't have a supported pad, I don't think we have any patch that should create that behaviour either, let's see if Rodrigo or somebody else has a clue about the issue.
