Dash Search Keeps Launching Tomboy Instances When "Tomboy" Source is ON

Bug Description

When Tomboy search source is ENABLED in Unity Dash, a simple search is enough to trigger launching of new Tomboy instances. Once the source is DISABLED, no search triggers this bug.

How to reproduce: Enable the Tomboy source, open Dash and start typing something what might trigger Tomboy. Say, typing "Tomboy" or just "Tom" and so on, and deleting it and typing again, is enough to keep firing new instances.

Is there any fix in sight? The problem became rather annoying after a few months.
