Of course, the killall unity-panel-service command to restore the panel when facing the problem is by no mean a solution to this bug, but just a way to quickly fix things without logging out/logging in or performing other time-consuming procedure . Obviously, a solution has to be found in order to prevent duplicated indicators loading (we're at the "fix committed" stage for this bug, so it seems that we do have a solution now).

That being said, if the problem was to happen again, the killall unity-panel-service may serve as a workaround, if used within a script automatically launched at startup, like it is proposed in a similar bug report (in that case, it was the killall gnome-panel command) for a previous Ubuntu version: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-panel/+bug/439448
