Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

In "autohide" mode the launcher doesn't hide with windows of type _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_UTILITY, the window goes below the launcher.

Test Case:
- Enable 'Autohide mode' for the launcher
- Launch Gimp
- the launcher must be shown i.e no window forces it to hide
- Move one of the toolbox to the left.

- The launcher doesn't hide and the toolbox passes below the launcher.

The launcher should not distinguish between window types when in
Intellihide mode.

There is still some case we don't want all window to hide the launcher (like someone adding a new PANEL-type window (even if they shouldn't)). I'm adding the utility window to the list and looking if we should add others (the list is pretty much complete).
