Bug Description

When I start nautilus form dashboard another icon appears at dashboard end, instead of highlighting the one in first position.
This is boring.
And every time I click on first position nautilus icon (or press SUPER+1) it always open a new window and icon on dashboard

I have fixed this problem by removing ~/.config/nautilus directory and doing:

sudo apt-get install nautilus --purge --reinstall

Changed in nautilus (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

I just right clicked the Nautilus icon in the launcher and removed it. Then re-launch nautilus from the dash, and move the icon up the list. Now I only get one icon.
