  Connecting an external display doesn't enable it automatically

Status in unity-settings-daemon package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In Ubuntu 13.04, connecting an external monitor to my Thinkpad T420
  (Intel HD 3000 graphics) causes the monitor to be automatically
  enabled, and the desktop extended to it. On the other hand, 13.10 and
  the 14.04 development release don't do this anymore. Instead, I need
  to open the System Settings, after which the external monitor is
  suddenly recognized (without changing a setting, or even going into
  the Displays panel). It would be great if this were automatic again.
