Bug Description

Hiding a dynamic quicklist is something that can't be done always well.

For example, if you have a launcher icon with a quicklist doing something like:
 - quicklist.property_set_bool (Dbusmenu.MENUITEM_PROP_VISIBLE, false);
or
 - Unity.LauncherEntry.get_for_desktop_id ("anydesktop_file.desktop").quicklist = null;

Doesn't work. However those are two different issues, in fact while the first one is caused by a problem in unity (that should not show a hidden quicklist), the second one is related to libunity that doesn't allow to reset the quicklist by setting it to a null value.

The only working way to hide a quicklist actually is the one of hiding the single menu items, however that (also due to a unity bug) doesn't hide also the quicklist separator (in the case that the icon launcher doesn't has also a static quicklist).

You can see this issue in the attached screenshot running a code like the one pasted at http://paste.ubuntu.com/683963/

All these issues could be also tested with this vala code: http://paste.ubuntu.com/683980/
