Bug Description

device nexus 4 mako

os Ubuntu 15.04 (r73)

I love the left swipe, being able to go back to the main menu by doing a full swipe to the left is great.
However my list of apps has considerably increased \o/ and i usually search them via the search button and this is where the problem lies. A full left swipe does not bring me back to the main menu but to the last searched app if i opened my app through the search menu

As an example
Step 1 go to apps scope on main menu
step 2 search music app via the search button ( type music)
step 3 open music app
step 4 do a full left swippe

I should expect to being brought back to app scope.
==> Full left swipe brings me back to results of step 2

------------------------------
Desired design solution:

Long left edge swipe or BFB click on the launcher takes user back to apps scope (or leftmost scope in the dash). It also resets the search query and
positions the list in the beginning.

I think this is a good idea. When the user wants to open multiple music apps from the filtered list in the given example, the way to go back to that list is to use right edge navigation. Just one short right edge swipes gets you back to the search results.

But performing one of the "home" gestures/actions would reset the view to initial state and therefore giving always consistent and predictable end result is a good approach.
