Bug Description

Bug when using lp:unity and lp:bamf.

As indicated by a failure in the Unity autopilot test: test_hud.HudVisualTests.test_dash_hud_only_uses_icon_from_current_desktop, unity fetches the wrong application icon when switching from the Dash to the HUD.

[Test Case]
1. Move to an empty desktop/workspace
2. Open the Dash (tapping Super)
3. Open the HUD (tapping Alt)

Expected: the HUD icon shows the BFB desktop icon

Actual: the HUD icon shows '?' icon, which is invalid

Versions: unity - 6.12.0daily12.12.05bzr2974pkg0quantal0, bamf - 0.4.0daily12.12.05bzr507pkg0quantal0.
