Same problem - unrooted kindle fire hd, side loaded googleloginservice and googleframework and installed all google apps: talk, voice, maps, gmail, currents, maps. After about a day, lost the status bar as described by many here and had a glitch with screen orientation which resulted in lag .
Uninstalled gmail, and restarted the kindle- that seems to work. Synced to amazon and now the kindle shows the registered name.

Update: just went into gmail and after closing, the bar is back! WT.
