Bug Description

Problem is that plank, which is claimed to use bamf for window matching, doesn't match Gnome Maps (class "gnome-maps") with its launcher (file org.gnome.Maps.desktop).

And there are more apps with such issue, where window class differs from desktop launcher's filename.

However, thanks to modern toolkits, many windows have property NET_WM_PID, which would be a great help in window matching.

------
Versions: plank 0.11.3, bamf 0.5.3, gentoo with elementary overlay (+ these two are from elementary overlay, bumped and placed to local overlay).
