Bug Description

As you can see in the attached screenshots (specifically, the "Compose" and "Contacts" items), the alignment for static (when the app is closed) and dynamic (when the app is open) shortcuts is different. I suppose the latter is the correct one.

Yes, as shown in the <> wireframe, the leading edge of an application's shortcut items should line up exactly with the leading edge of the *text* of the application item -- regardless of whether the application is open.

I remember fixing this for Precise last cycle.

It's definitely fixed in Quantal, were the shortcut menu items aren't touched at all when the application starts/stops running.
