Here is the current status on the gtk3 indicator-plugin testing. In general

Wonky vertical alignment:
    All problems relating to this are now fixed upstream.

    Reported here:

pidgin incoming messages not shown in message indicator:
    Affects everything including Unity.
    Possibly related to above bug which prevents indicator menus from being
