network icon missing on ubuntu GNOME live CD

Bug Description

We removed network-manager-gnome from the Ubuntu GNOME seed, since we no longer require nm-applet.

gnome-shell requires the network-manager dbus service to obtain network information (even when networking is manually configured via /etc/network). So we should recommend this from gnome-shell.

Right now networking on the live cd's and new install will be a bit broken!

Seems sense making to me.

Please forward to Debian, although I don't know if they can take it given the tech-ctte's ruling...
