Launcher being shown with dash is distracting and unnecessary

Bug Description

The launcher really doesn't need to be shown with the dash. The two are reasonably independent. You don't show the dash every time you show the launcher, why should the inverse be true? The only case I can think of showing the launcher with the dash is on drag from dash, but we should wait to show the launcher until this has happened, just like all other drag cases.

(This is the opposite of bug 747309.)

Good progress, thanks Dustin.

I was surprised at the magenta that came up in debconf in gnome-terminal
today. Can I ask you to provide Marcus with a set of instructions to get
gnome-terminal showing one of those, so he can double-check that the
colour has come out as hoped?

Alex, good call, if you look at the mockups you'll see our plan is to
de-emphasise the launcher until drag.
