Correct icon not getting illuminated in launcher for drag dropping.

[Test Case]

1) Stick gedit to the launcher (without opening it)
2) Drag a text file

Expected behavior:
3) Gedit is illuminated in the launcher, since it supports text files

Actual beahvior:
3) Gedit is not illuminated in the launcher until is launched

[Regression Potential]

Favorite/sticky handling. The commit includes a new test case files test-application.c and data files to test the functionality.
