Bug Description

To reproduce:
On a brand new install of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS "Trusty Tahr" 64-bit with chromium-browser 34.0.1847.116-0ubuntu2 and Unity 7.2.0+14.04.20140423-0ubuntu1.2 (all fully updated when the bug was found):

1. Install Chromium
2. Click the Settings icon on the right
3. Click on Tools > Create Application Shortcuts...
4. [Deselect Desktop] Select Application Menu
5. Click Create
6. An icon will come up with the Chromium logo with the 'Facebook' name
7. Close all Chromium windowschromium-browser
8. Unlock the normal 'Chromium' one from the Launcher
9a. When clicking on the 'Facebook' launcher - launches a New Tab in Chromium.
9b. When searching for 'Chromium' in the Dash, it can't find it - Chromium is now known as Facebook

For some reason, I can now add a second Facebook launcher with the correct icon and everything but the Chromium one which calls itself 'Facebook' in the Dash and Launcher just acts like normal Chromium. Because of this, I'm not sure if the bug can be reproduced. Really annoying though: if anyone has a fix for this (so - how do I correct 'Chromium' to call itself 'Chromium' not 'Facebook' in the Dash) then I would be very grateful :)

If you need any files, please ask. Running 'ubuntu-bug chromium-browser' only opened a New Tab (in a new window) in Chromium after reporting so I couldn't do that. I will report that as a separate bug when I get the chance. (Update: Seems like this happens for every link I try to open from the desktop)

I don't know if this is a bug in Unity or Chromium so I've filed it as under both. Feel free to Invalidate one once you know which project this isn't a problem in.
