Context:
Had exactly one nautilus window in existence, but minimised to the launcher. This existing nautilus window was pointed to the directory of an external device (i.e. /media/james/HDD1)

Expected behaviour:
Clicking the nautilus icon in the unity launcher should unminimise this existing nautilus window.

Actual behaviour:
Clicking on the nautilus icon in the unity launcher caused a new nautilus window to open. The existing nautilus window is still able to be unminimised by either Alt-Tabbing to it or by clicking the external device icon in the unity launcher.
