Bug Description

If an attempt is made to logout with an application not responding then a message is displayed indicating this, with an option to cancel the logout. If cancel is pressed then one is stuck with no top panel.
The problem is not seen on Unity-3D

As of this date this can be replicated easily by starting tomboy then attempting to logout, as it has a bug which causes it to not respond when attempting to log out.

I am still seeing a very similar issue, though possibly it is a different bug.
Using Unity-2d from ppa 4.14-0ubuntu1~bzr777.
To replicate:
Open LibreOffice and type something in, do not save.
Initiate a logout.
LibreOffice pops up a save or discard dialog and a warning appears that there is an app still running, with an option to cancel.
Select Cancel (on either dialog) and the panel and launcher do not re-appear.

For the record, to recover from this, Ctrl+Alt+Delete allows the logout to continue.

@Colin: please set the bug to reopened if you think this bug isn't fixed.

I'm doing bookwork setting this bug to Fix Released right now. It's not a slight on you :)
