Bug Description

image#136
this is minor and non threatening, just unexpected ux behavior

1. install applications from ubuntu store
2. launch applications
3. long press the applications icon in the dash
4. select uninstall app

expected: app to close, icon on launcher to disappear
actual: app kept running, application could be accessed in the spread/right swap, icon on launcher could be selected & even pinned

I agree that the launcher Icon should go away (at least become unpinned) but I wouldn't agree that the app should be closed.

Adding ubuntu-ux for clarification.

I believe it should. After it's uninstalled behaviour becomes unexpected, it may crash if there's a missing library/file or something.

Maybe not without user interaction, but I don't think that an uninstalled up should linger around.
