pyglet apps appear as "panel" in the Launcher

Bug Description

All pyglet apps appear in the Launcher as if the app name is "panel", and the Launcher shows multiple windows for the app, even though there is only one window. I've attached a screenshot of the Launcher. You can duplicate the problem simply by installing the python-pyglet package and then running:

$ python
>>> from pyglet import window
>>> window.Window()

Clicking on the Launcher also takes you to the "choose between the windows" spread, but with only one window in the spread. I'm guessing this is bamf-related.

As it seems to be a confirmed problem related to Unity in the case of the other bug, I'll open tasks for unity here as well.

Exactly same issue with FlightGear, which, for sure, doesn't use pyglet.

Is libgl to blame here? From what it appears, apps that depend on OpenGL to register a window with the window manager have this problem. I might be wrong, though.
