Bug Description

I'm describing something that's happening on Ubuntu 14.04, with unity updated to the last version.

On the shortcuts sidebar of Unity, the shortcut "Files" behaves normally most of the time.

But when you have an external hard drive opened in the file browser, clicking on the shortcut "Files" opens a new instance of the file browser instead of simply displaying the already existing one on your screen.

This becomes rapidly annoying when you are often switching between the file browser and another app.
