Bug Description

Software-center is now auto adding all installed apps to the unity launcher including those with no .desktop's, there is no longer any option to 'Not add to the launcher'

Test case:
Install 7zip thru S-C
After install a non-functional launcher icon, (a ?) will be added.

I'm sure there are others but ATM S-C is a bit of a pita to get to run so not worth checking, I'm sure S-c will be fairly consistent in this regard
