Bug Description

If an application is closed or removable drive unplugged and the tooltip of the icon is visible, the tooltip doesn't disappear with the icon.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open an application that's not pinned to launcher and focus it.
2. Hover mouse over the icon of the application and wait for the tooltip to appear.
3. Press ALT-F4 to close the application.

What happens: Icon vanishes but the tooltip stays on screen until mouse is moved.
What should happen: Icon and tooltip vanish from the launcher.

Screenshot attached.
