Cycle of pinning/unpinning application leads to icon not appearing in launcher
1.) Run gedit with Alt+F2 'gksu gedit'
2.) Pin gedit to the launcher with 'Right Click > Keep in Launcher'
3.) Open gedit with the pinned launcher icon and then close it as fast as possible then unpin it
4.) Keep repeating 1-3 until you open gedit and no launcher icon appears.
At that point dragging the icon from the Dash when gedit is closed will not do anything (the icon won't appear)
= Original Description =
Gedit doesn't properly integrate with the launcher, namely:
1) If I drag it's icon from dash to the launcher, I don't see the icon, but instead an empty space. Hovering over this space produces a tooltip "Empty Label"
2) When launched from dash (or command line) and then choosing "Keep in Launcher" the icon doesn't indicate a running app (i.e. when gedit gets launched from this, there's no triangle to indicate that it's running)
3) On certain occasions, nothing appears at all on the launcher when gedit gets launched.
Happens from time to time on Natty, always on Oneiric.
