Bug Description

in certain cases application activation will not work
1. Open at least 2 tabs, which one of them is a webapp (in my case, Google Docs)
2. Press Ctrl+Shift+E and create another tab group
3. In the new tab group, open some tabs (but not the opened webapp)
4. If you press the webapp icon in Launcher, the wrong tab will be selected. In my case, the Google Docs tab was the third tab of the first group. If I switch to another tab group and click the Google Docs icon in Launcher, it focus the third tab of the current group (in my case, it focused a tab with the WebUpd8 site opened)
[Regression Potential]
 * low.
 * all code paths are well-tested.
