Bug Description

[Impact]

Applications launched via Java Webstart are grouped under the same icon on the unity launcher. Unable to activate individual javawebstart apps via launcher button.

[Test Case]

Download different jnlp's (for example from http://is.gd/lGDr0Z) and launch them: they should not be grouped together if they're different applications.
Automated tests are included into the diff.

[Regression Potential]

Windows of applications with no .desktop files could be matched as different applications if their execution path differs.
Gnome Control Center and LibreOffice matching codepath has been slightly changed but is now potentially improved and more solid (both unit-tested).

Oops... I've just noticed that the fix committed does not cover all the cases. I've just pushed a fix that will cover that too.
