Bug Description

KeePass2 windows in the Ubuntu 11.10 launcher are registered as "panel", with a question mark for an icon and three instance ticks (regardless of how many instances are actually running). Having looked at KeePass2's desktop entry and executable, I do not believe this is through any fault of its own (see attached files).

I am filing this bug on behalf of question #72451 on AskUbuntu.

From what it seems like, KeePass uses Mono and Windows Forms to render the GUI. BAMF supports matching for only GTK and Qt apps.

The fix needs to be in KeePass, and you need to use a WM class for the window or something. Jason Smith will be able to provide more information on what should be done in KeePass, or whether BAMF should be patched to support WinForms apps.
