[SRU] Window Matching fixes

Bug Description


 * Window matching behaviors are deficient. This means that the Dash does not always correctly indicate which app is active, and sometimes two icons can be displayed for the same app (one that stays permanently for launching, and one that appears only when the app is running).

[Test Case]

 * Browse to the affected website, notice the behavior of the webapps in the Dash is inconsistent. Behavior can include -
  * Browser Launcher item is not associated with the appropriate WebApp Launcher item
  * Two items may appear associated with the WebApp (instead of one)
  * Icon may appear as Launcher default, not the appropriate WebApp icon

[Regression Potential]

* Quite small, this change is confined to libunity-webapps and can't impact anything outisde of the webapps interaction in Unity.

Hi Brian,

Just checked this one in a fresh saucy VM, window matching is looking great! Definitely resolves the issue.
