Bug Description

steps to reproduce.
1, Make sure application is not in launcher
2, Launch application from a terminal (example: file-roller)
3, right click application on launcher - add to favourites.
4, close application.
5, right click application launcher - will now display EmptyLabel.

Not reproducible if the application was already in the launcher and you open/close it - so i would assume that the desktop file which is normally loaded on unity start, is not loaded. thus you end up without a label once bamf says the application is not open anymore

I can confirm that. A restart of unity (or a login/logout cycle) fixes this though. Still odd.
