App icon disappears from launcher if you right click and uncheck the "Keep in Launcher" option. The icon should not disappear if the app is still running.

To reproduce:

- Right click on launcher icon and select "Keep in Launcher"
- Right click on launcher icon again and de-select "Keep in Launcher"
- icon disappears, application is still running.

Application no longer part of Alt-Tab switching

Doesn't happen for me in Precise. Can someone on Oneiric try reproducing this?

I have used the steps you have provided above, but have been unsuccessful in reproducing the bug. Could you provide a screencast/some screenshots of the issue, as this may help?

Also, does running unity --reset and unity --reset-icons and then trying the steps again, fix it?

Seems like a user configuration issue to me.
