Bug Description

Having this in the QML code:

    Connections {
        target: UriHandler
        onOpened: {

and registering the according click hooks, it works fine if the app is already running when the url is dispatched. However, if the app needs to be started, it will start, but the onOpened handler is never called.

Compile the two apps and install them onto your phones

Test cases:

- When "myapp" is not running, using url dispatcher, in launchmyapp to invoke it. The parameters are passed in by command line
- When "myapp" is running, the above "UriHandler" will be called, and the parameters will be passed in

Turns out one needs to parse the application's command line arguments for this. This works, but would be nice if the docs would mention this. Especially since it differs how ContentHub behaves. That one launches the app and then emits the signal when the app has started on its own.
