The patch works perfectly!

I believe that ibus is the package "at fault". It probably gets patched by Ubuntu Maintainers to be named (Probably to make it compatible with Unity)

Unfortunately "" is too generic and probably not the best choice for it's name

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

the libappindicator issue is somewhat similar to bug #875770

summary: - ibus doesn't display in gnome-shell tray
+ the ibus' indicator fallback icon doesn't have a proper name

Okay, so two parts of this bug.
1) libappindicator should use the ID of the indicator on the fallback and set_name() based on that
2) ibus should set it's name to ibus-ui-gtk
Each of the bug tasks represent those different fixes. So I think we're good.

The bug is still present in Ubuntu Precise (as of Feb 6 2012)

I've added ibus to this bug, but I guess the ibus packaging team which should be reported.

no longer affects: ibus

I can report that Debian's ibus package shows up in the top bar as expected.

This bug was fixed in the package ibus - 1.4.1-1ubuntu2

ibus (1.4.1-1ubuntu2) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/05_appindicator.patch: tweak the id so the fallback icon
    gets the same name as the normal gtkstatusicon (lp: #885080)
