keepassx (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

After launching keepassx from Unity launcher - although open - the little dot on the left side of the launcher is not shown indicating that the application is started. Indeed if minimizing the keepassx main window and clicking again on the launcher starts a second instance of keepassx.

I have unity-window-quicklists installed and when right-clicking the launcher I can see that the Window is there.

Problem seems to go away with second relogin after installation. At least after logging out and back in again I can see the indicator and cannot reproduce the problem any more.

I have the same problem with libre office apps - every now and then :

although many calc and draw windows are open there are no arrows on the left side of the icon.

If windows are reduced it is then difficult to find them again.

Left click on the icon open a new document.

Right click show no further name of document or app (the 2nd place is empty)

Quit session and relogging solves the problem

or - sometimes - delete the icon and create a new one by drag-and-drop from dash

Same problem with LibreOffice icons.

I manage 50 Ubuntu 12.04 PC in my office and this problem (with others) ; same problem with my own PC and notebook.

This problem was reported to my boss :/ it is hard to defend a bug.

This problem could be fatal to unity first and ubuntu in my office...that i really do not want.
