Bug Description

Put music on device
Launch music app, make sure it works
Switch back to dash
Launch a track by clicking it in the home scope
Music app launches
Switch back to the application scope

Observe multiple copies of music app running, expected behaviour is that it re-uses an existing one.

I'm not sure we can fix this in the music app, we'll need to find out whether this is a bug that needs to be addressed either in Unity or the music scope.

  [ Ricardo Mendoza ]
  * Add support for upstart-app-launch to request application resume &
    focus. This revealed extra work: prevent unexpected focus events
    propagating to shell, fix lifecycle bug and add workaround for
    handling of non-application sessions (like QtWebProcess and maliit).
    (LP: #1228345)
  * Make shell surface be an input monitor. (LP: #1236736, #1231713,
    #1233245)
  * Make sure we dont lose focus on the currently focused application
    when dismissing an invalid session startup. (LP: #1236789)

  [ Daniel d'Andrada ]
  * Do not let touches meant for the OSK hit the Shell components behind
    it. (LP: #1236773)

  [ Michał Sawicz ]
  * Map rect to scene in setMirInputArea and set the geometry onEnabled.
    (LP: #1235383, #1235215)
  * Focus the shell when no sessions are focused. It's difficult with
    the current architecture for the shell to receive keyboard focus, as
    it does not have an associated application session. Work around this
    by implementing a defaulting FocusSetter, which assigns keyboard
    focus to the shell surface when focus would otherwise be cleared.
