Bug Description

Using the new unity with smart scopes in saucy:

- do alt-f2
- type a command name
- click on the command icon

-> it displays a preview screen where you can't run the command

Indeed, this is making alt + f2 not really usable for most people not using enter or double click

I talked to design (John Lea). ALT+F2 was never meant to be part of the Dash and shouldn't display previews at all. We'll need to special-case it in Unity and in apps lens (command runner) so that LMB, RMB and double click all activate the result.
