Bug Description

[ Impact ]

The label in the Unity Panel when the desktop is in the forground is not properly internationalizable or customizable for derivative distributrions.

[ Test Case ]

Install Ubuntu Kylin and observe the title in the Unity Panel when the desktop is in the foreground.

[ Regression Potential ]

Improperly implemented, this change could result in no label or an incorrect label displayed in the Unity Panel when the desktop is in the foreground. This does not appear to occur during testing.

[ Additional Info ]

The Ubuntu 14.04 LTS SRU has been cherry-picked from upstream Unity as released in Ubuntu 14.10 and has proved to be stable in daily use.
