Bug Description

On Ubuntu 17.10, I wanted to add gnome-terminal to the favorites. Usually in Gnome, the item gets added one times. Instead, there were two items of gnome-terminal in the favorites.

Interesting this was first reported against the standard gnome-shell dock (comment #1) but apparently is being reported against ubuntu dock too (bug 1723355)

no longer affects: gnome-terminal (Ubuntu)
description: updated

Note that the issue with the Ubuntu dock only happens when you _drag_ the icon from the activities window to the doc. If you favorite the app using right-click menu, then the icon is only added once.
