    Minimised app doesn't restore when clicking unity launcher icon

    I found that it works if you click the desktop first and then click on the launcher icon. Alternatively if I click another icon to start a second program, then clicking on the first program's icon does then restore it. I'm pretty sure it isn't supposed to work that way. Is any one else getting this problem?

    This is real subtle behaviour (or a bug). I see what you mean alphacrucis2. I notice when I minimise the app it has two pale "notches" on either side of the launcher icon. If I click on the desktop, or another icon, the minimised app then has only one notch, and can then be restored. Currently on unity (4.18.0-0ubuntu1)
