Bug Description

so i was testing for bug 1504269
on nexus4
last update: 2015-10-26 14:09:21
version version: 54
version ubuntu: 20151026
version device: 20150911
version custom: 20150929-2-vivid

i had the mouse & keyboard connected, no external monitor
i had dash & system settings open
i maximized dash, then reset to windowed mode with same button
i maximized u-s-s, then i accidentally hit "quit" button
i relaunched u-s-s
expected: to either launch back in window mode as maximized with buttons
actual: launched in full screen, but as in phone mode - with no buttons

noticed that subsequent launch of phone app (while in this state) first appeared as a full screen phone mode - but after blanking and using switcher, phone app went to windowed mode as expected, but u-s-s persisted in the state of phone mode full screen no buttons. launched a few other apps, all were in windowed mode.

just attaching video for what i am seeing
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgBwp1Lg4QU
this is in silo 21 which has the attached branch
note the video is mainly to show the windowed mode vs mobile mode of apps (the rotating due to phone app seems to be a new issue)

OK, with the latest silo 21 i've played with it enough to be convinced the "disappearing buttons" & apps launching into phone mode is fixed.

However, i still see "disappearing app", which i have now determined is actually minimized apps show up in the spread - but do not reinstate themselves onto the screen if selected from the spread. the same applications (still minimized) do reinstate themselves onto the screen if selected from the launcher.

@kevin, yes, the minimized apps not being restored when activated from the spread is known and is fixed in

This one didn't make it into the silo yet tho.
