Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-terminal

This is an off-shoot of bug #733669.

When using unity-place-applications, unlike the Ubuntu Software Center, you can search for "Terminal" and there are 3 applications all called "Terminal" with no way to differentiate apart from the icons. In version 0.2.38, it also shows uninstalled applications from the Software Center making the problem worse.

The proposal is that all applications named exactly the same (gnome-terminal, vala-terminal, and terminal.app) should have their names changed. Or at least the two Terminals that aren't installed by default.
