Bug Description

The Category Header of any category that is not expandible should not be selectable using either mouse or keyboard navigation as clicking/activating this item does nothing. For the same reason, the header shouldn't react to pointer over events (e.g. if you can't expand the Category Header it should not have a mouse over state)

This also includes the category headers of all flow views because they don't expand vertically.

[Test Case]
1. Open the dash
2. Search for "Brasero"
3. Make sure that the header "Applications" is not selectable (neither with the mouse nor with the keyboard)

[Regression Potential]
None

  * When looking for the top-most valid window in a VP, also check if the window
    is focused if the window is set to Always on Top. This allows Launcher icon
    spread to work properly when a window is minimized an Always on Top exists in
    the group. (LP: #1131385)
  * Wait on Spread to be terminated before showing the Quicklist. (LP: #1441626)

    to a file:// uri type so Nautilus can understand the type a make a copy of it

    keys the view scrolls the length of the visible view. (LP: #913612)

    when hiding the Hud. Fixes issue when "Always on Top" windows are present.
