Bug Description

With the new locking scheme in unity7, minimised applications appear briefly after unlocking

To reproduce:

1. Open some applications (in my case psensor and steam)
2. Minimise them
3. Press CTRL+ALT+L or Super+L to lock the screen
Observe the minimised windows briefly popup before the screen locks.
4. Unlock screen
Observe the minimised windows re-appear, then re-minimise.

I would expect minimised applications to stay minimised through the lock/unlock process.

  * Update the DPI when we setup the view. (LP: #1292268)
  * Do not avoid rendering the lockscreen when we have a fullscreen app.
    This also removes the old fullscreen + lockscreen fix where we force
    painted our selfs on top. (LP: #1291571)

  * Add ability to minimize a single window application when clicking on
    the Launcher icon of the application. (LP: #733349)

  * Do not consider minimized windows for cross fade effect. (LP:
