Bug description:

  * Games using the Unity engine (like KSP) cause gnome-panel to crash,
  making things like flashback unusable.

  [Test Case]

  * Run gnome-panel (like in gnome flashback).

  * Launch Kerbal Space Program.  Not sure whether there's a simpler
  test case for those without KSP.

  [Regression Potential]

  * The patch for the bug suggests the possibility of weirdly colored
  icons where crashes used to occur.

  [Other Info]

  * libwnck3 (3.14.0-1) allows gnome-panel to continue running in 14.10.
