Bug Description

When in multimonitor, if the desktop is selected in one monitor, then all the panels shows the title "Ubuntu Desktop", but this is wrong:
 - The panel should show the "Ubuntu Desktop" title only when the desktop is visible on that monitor.

See attached screenshot.

This seems to be fixed when LIM is enabled (the default now). Here is what I see:

- If I have a maximized window on one monitor and then click the desktop in the other monitor, the monitor with the maximized window does *not* show "Ubuntu Desktop" in the Panel of the monitor of the maximized window. The other monitor does show "Ubuntu Desktop".
- If the window is not maximized, then "Ubuntu Desktop" is shown in both Panels.

With LIM disabled, I still see this behavior.
