Bug Description

[ Impact ]

I'm seeing duplicate appindicators for snaps built with core22, like mattermost-desktop and discord.

[ Test case ]

From shell point of view:
 - Lock / unlock your desktop multiple times

With applications (both cases must be fixed):
 1) Electron apps
    - Install ferdium (https://github.com/ferdium/)
    - Open it in guest mode, go to settings
    - Toggle the "Always Show Ferdium in System Tray" option multiple times
    - Once disabled indicators should go away and be added again

 2) KDE Status Notification apps
    - Download Telegram desktop (snap install telegram-desktop)
    - Run it with:
      XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=KDE telegram-desktop
    - Disable notificationn area icon and enable it again
    - The icon should be hidden and shown again accordingly

[ Regression potential ]

 - Icon could not show at all or with the wrong content
 - Icon updates may lead to more CPU usage
 - Updated to icon could not be properly visible
