Bug Description

Steps to Repro
1. With Ubuntu Software Center install an application (e.g. eMule). A tile for eMule will appear in the launcher.
2. Close Software Center.
3. Open Dash, search for eMule and run it.

Expected Result:
Existing tile is active application tile for eMule.

Actual Result:
A second eMule tile appears and is active tile.

Note:
Restarting the launcher fixes this.

Note also the tile created by Softare Center for eMule has a badly sized icon.
