gnome-shell-3.8.3-relock-screen.patch seems to cause https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=662780
When I lock and unlock the screen the status at topbar is always offline (which is incorrect, since really I an online).
Commenting out the patch in the ebuild, reemerge and restart gnome-shell fixes the problem.
I have reproduced the problem again. Sorry this is simply wrong.
