This bug was fixed in the package gnome-control-center - 1:3.1.92-0ubuntu6

gnome-control-center (1:3.1.92-0ubuntu6) oneiric; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/90_force_fallback.patch:
    - Debian patch, disable the “forced fallback mode” switch, since
      we already provide a xsession file for it in gnome-session-fallback.
      The option is also incompatible with how sessions rare started in
      Debian or Ubuntu (using gnome-session --session) (lp: #825250)

  [ Jeremy Bicha ]
  * debian/patches/10_keyboard_layout_on_unity.patch: Fix capitalization
  [ Rodrigo Moya ]
  * debian/patches/10_keyboard_layout_on_unity.patch:
    - Use a different icon for region panel, since it was the same than
  * debian/patches/04_add_theme_selection.patch:
    - Ignore not-installed themes (LP: #856824)
    - Add Adwaita to the list of available themes (only shown if installed)
