I'm using version 4.22.0-0ubuntu3 at the moment and the problems is still manifest.

I should state there is only one alias on the dock at start up until you use it to open up a Nautilus window, at which point the second alias appears (without the shortlist incorporated).

This behavior seems redundant, wastes dock space, and perhaps even counter-productive considering the shortlist doesn't show up in the second alias.

Not sure this is a bug.
Looking at your custom nautilus-home.desktop -
Not too keen on putting the last 6 lines below 'X-Ayatana-Desktop-Shortcuts=' instead of above but i belive the real issue here is this line -
OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;
Try removing that line completely & see if things improve (may need a log out/in

The last 6 lines of mine were at the top, however, commenting out

OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;

And it's all good. Thanks Doug!

It started to behave properly for a while, then went back without adjusting anything.

In the end, hashing out OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity; seems to have fixed the problem, at least so far.

Thanks Doug.
