In 12.04 (Precise), Gnome Classic does not show "Other". Instead I see
the following menu:
Application > System Tools > Administration
Application > System Tools > Preferences

And then there is also System Settings. I would say that it is
accessible and I can't find a reason for an additional menu. I would say
it's not bug worthy.

What really bothers me more in gnome-fallback-session is users don't
know alt-right_clicking the gnome-panel get additional features like
adding an applet, panel properties, deleting items etc...
