Bug Description

Now with a fix for LP: #753938 being merged into raring, this presents a new usability challenge to users.

The issue:
When you open a trash window from the launcher and minimize it, it gets minimized into the Nautilus icon.
However, a user would then expect to get the window back by clicking the icon where the window minimized into in the first place,
in this case, the Nautilus icon in the launcher.
Instead, it opens a new Nautilus window.
The issue here is that trash windows and every other Nautilus window are only seperated logically from each other, but not visually.

The fix:
When minimizing the trash window, instead of minimizing into the Nautilus icon, it should minimize the window into the trash icon in the launcher.
I'm purely talking about the minimize animation and triangle next to the trash icon here.

I hate to be annoying but since feature freeze is aproaching quickly, this should be looked at very soon. It would be a bummer if such an obvious UX inconsistency lands in an LTS release.

This bug should be marked 'Critical', and taken care of ASAP.

Care should be taken what happens when user goes somewhere else from trash in the window opened from the trash launcher.
And also what happens when one goes to trash from a normal nautilus window.
