Using right click in the message tray icons make the popups disappear

Right clicking on an icon of a removable device in the message tray shows a popup menu that disappear as soon as the mouse moves.
This applies to gnome 3.6 too but as far as I know the only upstream patch avaiable for this is for gnome 3.8.
Here's the link to the relevant bug in gnome's bugzilla where the issue has been fixed:
That patch should be included.
The fix is included in gnome-shell 3.8.3 which is currently in testing.
