Bug Description

Icon behavior in the Unity launcher for the U1 CP is unusual after the most recent upgrade introducing the QT control panel.

I at one point had a grey "?" icon that was non-responsive replacing my CP icon. I later determined that this was becuase I hadn't done the requisite dist-upgrade. However we also have seen some weeridness as follows:

12:36 < Chipaca> dobey: when i locked it to the launcher, it got a gray background. When
                 unlocked, it isn't visible in alt-tab
12:36 < Chipaca> something weird is going on :(
12:37 < dobey> Chipaca: yeah, and i know exactly what it is :)
12:37 < Chipaca> dobey: all the same bug?
12:37 < dobey> yes

Assigning to Rodney as he apparently knows what the problem is. (combination of bamf, unity, and missing wm class stuffs, basically)

strangely, I have now seen other wierd behavior. Twice I tried to launch the control panel from the notifications menu and got nothing.

I launched qt control panel from the terminal, and it then launched, creating an icon on the launcher that has two icon spaces above it. once of which gives an ubuntuone mouseover/quickmenu that does nothing.

and having locked THAT icon to the launcher, it fails to launch either control panel.
