Bug Description

Running 11.10, with the default unity UI. installed scite from the repos. Instances of running scite (a) don't show as running on the launcher (no white triangle on the right, clicking the pinned menu item brings up new instance), and (b), are missing from the default application switcher UI that comes up with alt-tab.

Don't know how unity decides which apps to show, but this should be fixed, probably not just for scite, but maybe for other applications as well (i wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of other apps that are not in "the default install" exhibit the same behavior with unity).

This is on:
