Bug Description

In /usr/share/applications I have 2 starters for my application:
"NetBeans IDE 8.0" (/bin/sh "/usr/local/netbeans-8.0/bin/netbeans")
"NetBeans IDE 8.0 (root)" (gksudo /bin/sh "/usr/local/netbeans-8.0/bin/netbeans")
In /home/user/.share/applications I have 1 starter for the same application:
netbeans_ide_8_0.desktop (/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/bin/java ..... --userdir /root/.netbeans/8.0)
In /home/user/.share/icons I have 1 icon for the application:

When I type "NetBeans" into Dash, I see all 3. When I choose the 2nd one, my application starts fine.
I now klick "Remain in Starter" on the icon in the Unity bar and close the application.
When after I try to start my application from this icon, I get the attached error message, the same, as if I would use the 3rd from the Dash.

Notwithstanding, the 3rd starter is broken, probably left over from an incomplete installation, the correct starter should be copied to the Unity bar.

P.S.: Please excuse, that I was not able to find the correct project for this bug report!!!
