@Jeremy

Is this really a upstream bug. This is for Unity-Quicklist which is patched by Ubuntu.

See here: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-branches/ubuntu/vivid/gnome-screenshot/vivid-proposed/view/head:/debian/patches/update_unity_list.patch

Same patch is being used for zesty as well. I created a separate patch to overwrite that. (Or I can just modify "update_unity_list.patch" and provide that as a new patch). But it's a Ubuntu's patch.
