[Bottom launcher] Workspace icon switcher changes workspace when it shouldn't

Bug Description

When using the workspace switcher icon with launcher on the bottom the workspace is switched but it shouldn't.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Click workspace icon switcher
2. Workspaces get displayed
3. Click the wprkspace icon switcher again

Expected result is that the user returns to the current workspace. That's what happens with default Unity setup of Unity launcher on the left. But with launcher on the bottom the workspace is switched.

It's always switched to workspace 1x2 no matter what workspace the user had been using.
