Bug Description

After installation of gnome-shell and switching to Gnome Classic, there's no notification area (tray icon bar).
This is very confusing.
In combination with not-so-user-friendly way to edit panels*, it makes this quite annoying.

For some apps the tray icon is critical (Pidging / IM in general, printing icon, music players etc).

Hence, I suggest to add the Notification Area by default.

* `Alt+Win+Right click`. Took me a while until I struck this by accident. Before that, I thought it's simply not possible.

affects: konsole (Ubuntu) → gnome-shell (Ubuntu)

gnome-classic should have a notification area I believe. Is that not the case?
Or are you talking about Gnome-shell, which uses the message tray instead, so it doesnt have any notifications in the top panel. There may be extensions to implement this however.
