Bug Description

When a user double click on a launcher button in the Unity launcher bar, all windows related to the selected application are shown in a kind of "windows overview". Thus if application have multiple windows opened, you can select the which one you want.
It is work with all applications and also for Libre Office if the user opens documents from the same instance of Libre Office like Following :
- Launch Open Office
- File -> Open -> Open a first file
- File -> Open -> Open a second file
- Dbl click on Libre Office launcher button, the "Windows Overview" is shown

But it does not work when the user opens multiples documents with Nautilus :
- Open Nautilus
- Open a first ODF document
- Open a second ODF document through Nautilus
- Dbl click on the Libre Office launcher, the first Libre Office window is focused

I don't know if it is a full Unity related bug since if I start to instance of Firefox from two terminal the "windows overview" is well shown.

Note that the problem occurs also when starting a document from Nautilus, even if the second one is opened through "file -> open".

I can't reproduce this bug at all. Could you confirm if you're running the latest version of Unity (3.8.14) ?

My current Unity version is the latest stable available : 3.8.14
I tried to reproduce the problem from scratch, using ODT documents and ofcourse it works. By the way, because documents that I used when the problem occurs are MS Word documents, I tried again by converting ODT documents in DOC documents. And it worked too.

Finaly, using basic files that I used, with a little cleanup, I can reproduce the problem. Please find in attachment, zip containing sample files and video of the problem.

Note that, removing all decorations of documents, the problem doesn't occurs anymore.
