Bug Description

In 15.04, Nautilus' desktop name was changed from nautilus.desktop to org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop. Currently, org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop is set as NoDisplay=true and nautilus.desktop isn't, meaning that the old shortcut appears in the Unity menu instead of the new shortcut. This also means that when you remove the default Nautilus icon from favorites and re-add it by dragging the icon from the "Installed Applications" section in the Unity menu, the window matching won't work properly. You'll get a separate file icon that pops up whenever you launch it.

Expected fix: Set nautilus.desktop to NoDisplay=true and remove that line from org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop

Confirmed, the new desktop has NoDisplay=true, so the dash lists the old name compat one
