It's been around for a long time mainly because Ubuntu was the first
(and only?) distro to ship with a notification system that did not

code to deal with action-less notification systems upstream, I've pushed
a fix to handle this case.
Note that we can't include the wording "network menu above" because the
panel is *not* always above the bubble. The applet can be placed
anywhere (even on a bottom or side panel) so the wording cannot
reference the location of the panel like the bug report's patch tries to
