Yup, I have that installed by default, as you say. I was wrong about the 
envelope icon in the Menu Bar not turning blue: I just saw it do so. I 
have an impression it reverts to white after a short interval, even if 
the email is not read. But anyway, it's only the horizontal bar across 
the launcher icon which isn't working. And that is certainly the more 
noticeable of the two. I've sometimes seen this happen after upgrades 
before, because the link involved is obviously hard to integrate, 
involving two completely different packages contributed by different 
teams, Thunderbird and the Unity Desktop people.
