Yes..it may be by design, but can it be reconsidered ? it seems intuitive.

An Ayatana-Design task was added for this reason. However, considering
that we are quite late in the cycle, we may not be able to get a UIFe
or FFe for this.

I expressed this change request badly, mea culpa.

When the launcher is visible, the animation should be to the relevant
visible application icon in the launcher. When the launcher is hidden,
it should be to the corner.
