This bug was fixed in the package indicator-session - 0.3.92-0ubuntu1

indicator-session (0.3.92-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/restore_session_lock.patch, debian/rules:
    - get the indicator to enforce locking again since we still have cases
      where locking is not done otherwise (lp: #939518)

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * debian/control: Add alternative packagekit dependency, since this ought to
    work with either the aptdaemon pkcompat or packagekit itself.

  [ Ted Gould ]
  * New upstream release.
    * Make GUDev dependency optional for non-Linux kernels
    * Add accessibility strings on the icons (LP: #891861)

Ok, I reverted the indicator-session commit in the package for now but ideally that would be fixed in lightdm or wherever it makes sense ... Robert, any idea about what needs fixing still?
