This bug is not fixed as far as I can see in

unity-control-center (15.04.0+15.04.20150410-0ubuntu1) vivid;

2 updates after the aforementioned 0408 update.

was asking me to update libcups2 however no luck after update it.

the same exact error appeared; also, it seems causing network icon disappeared as well even in IBUS mode.

Please investigate.
