Bug Description

[ Impact ]

 1. Open one nautilus window and another window, so that nautilus is not focused
 2. Open the dash File lens (Super+F)
 3. Start dragging a file from that to the nautilus launcher icon
 4. Wait some delay

Expected Result:
 4. The dash is closed and nautilus window is focused

Actual result:
 4. The nautilus window is focused, but the dash is not closed

[ Test Case ]

See above.

[ Regression Potential ]

Any code change in Unity has the potential to introduce crashes in Unity.

This particular fix has the potential to not close the dash after a drag-and-drop operation, which could conceivably result in a desktop lock-up requiring a restart.

[ Other Info ]

The Ubuntu 14.04 LTS SRU fix was cherry-picked from Ubuntu 14.10 where it has been in production use for some time without apparent regression.

  [ Michal Hruby ]
  * Split out dconf schemas into separate package

  [ Brandon Schaefer ]
  * Make sure we check if the Quicklist or Alt+F1 key nav is open (so we
    can close them) Bore checking if something as a WM grab. As we cant
    open the hud is in Quicklist or KeyNav anymore. (LP: #1353167)

  [ Stephen M. Webb ]
  * Changed log message on failure to open xpathselect library from an
    error to a warning. The xpathselect library is used for
    introspection during automated test runs. It is not an error for
    this library to be unavailable in normal successful operating
    conditions. (LP: #1345296)

  * Add an arrow activator in the lockscreen. (LP: #1332509)
  * Allow a distinct pam config file for greeter and for lock-screen.

  [ Marco Trevisan (Treviño) ]
  * Autopilot, Switcher: use correct right/left scroll buttons for
    next/prev mouse selection (LP: #1353383)
  * UScreen, PanelService: get monitor at position, ignoring pre-
    multipled Gdk scale factor Get monitor position based on absolute
    coordinates, ignoring the pre-multipled scaling factor that Gdk
    applies to all the monitor sizes. In this way we get the proper
    monitor index for absolute coordinates, independently from the
    scaling factor. (LP: #1351591)
  * ApplicationLauncherIcon: make sure we close the dash if DnD is
    accepted And we're about to focus the application window(s) (LP:
