Bug Description

As per https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/894238 it would be great to be able to disable the launcher, a feature for which I have no use.

It is possible nearly to disable it by suitable (extreme) settings, but unforunately it still affects the placement of new windows, which are offset from the left of the screen.

I have a workaround patch which simply comments out a call to tryNotIntersect in unityshell.cpp, but of course this is not a general-purpose fix.

I've looked through the code, but it's far from obvious to me how to disable the launcher; however, I imagine this can't be terribly complicated for anyone who is familiar with the code.
