Files icon disappears from Launcher

Bug #1598313 reported by Donald Pellegrino on 2016-07-01

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
unity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. Files is not running. No Files windows are open.
2. Unlock Files from the Launcher - it is removed from the Launcher
3. Use the Ubuntu keyboard button to open the Dash
4. Type Files and hit enter to open a Files window
5. Observe that the Files icon for the new window appears on the Launcher
6. Observe that the Files icon then disappears from the Launcher a second later without any actions having been taken by the user

Expected Behavior

Step 6 should not occur. When Files in run and a Files window is open, then the Files icon should show on the Launcher with appropriate indicator for the corresponding open window.

The test system did not exhibit this behavior before July 1, 2016. Some updates were applied via aptitude on July 1, 2016. A recent update may have triggered this bug.
