Bug Description

When drag&dropping an icon from dash to launcher, if the same application is already in the launcher the drag&drop is cancelled without any user feedback.

.xsession-errors says :
WARN 2011-09-16 08:38:06 glib <unknown>:0 Attempted to register a quicklist that was previously registered

Couldn’t we give a feedback, maybe shake the existing icon like when opening a file in an already running app ?

-----------------------------------------

Desired Resolution:

When a user drags and drops a application icon from the Dash to the Launcher that is already in the Launcher:
- The application that is already in the Launcher should move to the location where the application icon from the dash was dropped.
- The application should become pinned to the Launcher ("Keep in launcher" becomes checked). (if it is not already pinned to the Launcher)

I would understand Triaged, Won’t Fix, Opinion, but I can’t guess what you find incomplete…

Thanks.
