Yes, tag writing support was removed from the lame element in recent
gstreamer versions, your new gstreamer pipeline (set in
gnome-audio-profiles-properties) needs to include the libid3tag-based
"id3mux" plugin and should look something like this (I use variable
bitrate encoding):

audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc vbr=4 preset=1001 ! xingmux ! id3mux

Recent gstreamers contain the new (and better) taglib-based "id3v2mux"
plugin (you will need to have taglib installed for this to work):

audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc vbr=4 preset=1001 ! xingmux ! id3v2mux

The "xingmux" plugin is only necessary if you are using variable
bit-rate encoding and writes the correct duration information.
xingmux may not work with the id3mux plugin, but should work with
id3v2mux.  With a simple constant bitrate setting you can use:

audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc bitrate=192 ! id3mux


audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! lame name=enc bitrate=192 ! id3v2mux
