Bug Description

The panel option "Show my name" in unity-tweak-tool is not working in Ubuntu 17.04

"gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.session show-real-name-on-panel true" which is afaik what utt is doing also has no effect. Same goes for the "Show my login name in the menu bar" option in the system settings.

Last time when I was using it in 16.04 it was working so I guess something has changed since then.
I'm using the latest version of utt 0.0.7ubuntu2
