Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Reporting on unity since that's a crash when happens with the launcher on unity 3.2.16, it seems to happen on small dnds over icons from the launcher, I first triggered it by wanting to click to run an application but did a small dnd instead and unity crashed.

Doing lot of small dnd over an icon which I keep clicking I can trigger the crash in 5 seconds, it's harder to trigger with a normal unity use.
