I can reproduce on uk, restart button will disappear in a few seconds
ubuntu 14.10 is uniy8, it is different from uk about menu item

any more test?

Looking at the code it's supposed to be disabled under Unity since restart/shutdown trigger the same dialog there, it seems it just takes a bit to the code to get the information that it's under Unity and toggle the item, maybe we should change the default since Unity is the main user of that indicator?
