Bug Description

1. open an application (appears in launcher)
2. drag the icon out the launcher
3. no more app icon matched in the launcher!

What should happen:
- if the icon was pinned, it should be unpinned
- as the application is still active, the icon should remain

Confirmed: the icon of a running application is being removed if it is dragged out of the launcher. And the application is still running but has no matching icon in the launcher...
