Bug Description

In GNOME Classic, clicking Sound Settings just opens System Settings instead of opening the Sound panel of System Settings.

This is because gnome-control-center has been patched to use the "sound-nua" redesigned panel on Unity but not for GNOME. Also, the Ubuntu packaging for indicator-sound, in the sound_nua.patch has patched the Sound Settings link to point to sound-nua.

indicator-sound should sniff for the currently running desktop session. If it's Unity, show sound-nua; but if it's GNOME, show sound.

basically the way it's done at other places is

if (!g_strcmp0 (g_getenv ("XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP"), "Unity"))

We'll carry this as a distro patch until this work gets upstreamed into Gnome.
