Bug Description

The bug is easily reproducible:

Scenario one:

1. Search for tvtime in the dash and open it.
2. Right-click on the launcher icon for tvtime and select "Pin to the launcher" (or similar, I have the Spanish locale of Ubuntu) in the quicklist.
3. Close tvtime.
4. Try to open tvtime from the launcher. It will not open.

Scenario two:

1. Search for tvtime in tha dash, and drag its icon to the launcher bar.
2. Try to open tvtime from the launcher. It will open, but it will create a new icon in the launcher instead of marking the previous one as running.

I mark the bug as related to unity, but maybe it is related to tvtime too.
