Bug Description

ubuntu-app-launch-tools version: 0.9+15.04.20160913.1-0ubuntu1
Tested on arale version 425 from ubuntu-touch/rc-proposed/meizu.en

1) ubuntu-app-launch ubuntu-system-settings
   system settings app launches as expected.
2) ubuntu-app-list
   ubuntu-system-settings is listed as expected.
3) ubuntu-app-stop ubuntu-system-settings

Expected result:
ubuntu-system-settings app should be stopped.

Actual result:
ubuntu-system-settings is not stopped. The same behaviour is observed for other native apps, e.g. dialer-app. But ubuntu-app-stop works fine with click-apps and web-apps.

Following error is reported:

Unable to stop job application-legacy app_id ubuntu-system-settings instance_id ubuntu-system-settings-: GDBus.Error:com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Error.UnknownInstance: Unknown instance: ubuntu-system-settings-ubuntu-system-settings-

  * Set a base directory for icons that have a full path specified in
    their desktop file (LP: #1623636)
  * Don't throw an exception when a Desktop file fails to include an
    Icon key (LP: #1617348)
  * Switch from g_atexit to std::atexit to avoid deprecation warnings
  * Use the --id field for launching with libertine-launch and use it
    for setting up other X11 environments
  * Ensure we don't check the length of a nullptr array
  * Make sure we don't check snapd if we know it won't return useful
  * Make use of the instance parameter consistent through all the
    backends (LP: #1626028)
