Bug Description

Sometimes after launching an app via the Dash Home, then next time the Dash is opened it does not accept input into the text field unless the user clicks inside the text field first. The correct behaviour is for the Dash search box to always accept input as soon as the Dash is opened. This is a hard bug to reproduce, sometimes it works many times in a row before the bug occurs. Perhaps there is a timing issue

This occurs in trunk as well.

To reproduce:
1) enter search string into dash.
2) make sure you have a result highlighted.
3) hover mouse between 2 results (do not move mouse from now on!)
4) press escape to reset search
5) type a new search string (will not work)
