1. Install smuxi from Software Centre
2. Observe that it has added a launcher icon
3. Click the launcher icon to start smuxi
4. Switch to another application
5. Switch back to smuxi by clicking its launcher icon
6. Quit smuxi (with its File > Quit menu item; closing the window does not quit the app)
7. Unlock the smuxi icon from the launcher
8. Launch smuxi from the Dash
9. Switch to another application
10. Switch back to smuxi by clicking its launcher icon
11. Lock the smuxi icon to the launcher
12. Quit smuxi
13. Click the locked launcher icon to start smuxi
14. Switch to another application
15. Switch back to smuxi by clicking its launcher icon

What happens:

3. The smuxi launcher icon does not have the triangle next to it to indicate that it is running
5. We do not switch to an existing smuxi; instead, a new one is launched!
8. The launcher icon *does* get the triangle when smuxi is launched from the dash
10. Works fine
13. The smuxi launcher icon does not have the triangle next to it to indicate that it is running
15. We do not switch to an existing smuxi; instead, a new one is launched!

What should happen:

3, 13: as 8
5, 15: as 10

So, the launcher icon does not seem to correctly detect that smuxi is launched, if it is launched *from* a launcher icon. It does work fine if smuxi is launched from the dash.

Note also that if the launcher does not detect that smuxi is running (and so it does not show the triangle), then Smuxi also does not show up in the Alt-Tab switcher. This makes it almost impossible to switch back to Smuxi.
