Bug Description

This problem started after Nautilus was integrated with launcher.

Nautilus windows opened as root aren't visible to the launcher and Alt+Tab switcher. Also you can't Alt+Tab to them or switch between windows with Alt+`.

There are two situations here. First only one window of Nautilus opened as root. In this case the window will be invisible until the user opens a regular Nautilus window.

Second case there is a regular Nautilus window and then user opens a Nautilus root window. The window will be invisible until user opens a second regular Nautilus or until user switches directories in the window of regular Nautilus.
