Yes, that's it. When you start Unity, you need to make sure you start it from a
process that inherits from the gnome-session process, or otherwise set the
environment variables yourself. The ones that seem important are
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS, XDG_SESSION_COOKIE, SESSION_MANAGER,
GNOME_KEYRING_SOCKET, GPG_AGENT_INFO, SSH_AUTH_SOCK, XAUTHORITY and DISPLAY.
You're better off filing a bug on Unity regarding this.
