Description of problem:
When i want to launch an application (for example, emacs) from a nautilus
desktop icon i often press ctrl-alt-d before i double-click on the emacs
nautilus icon in the desktop. This icon has been dragged from the main menu.
Then, the emacs window appear but all other windows on all desktop are now
iconified ! 
Pressing C-A-d again only hide the emacs window. Pressing C-A-d again will only
make the emacs window to re-appear. The desktop-list appplet seems to say that
the windows are *not* iconified. And, in shrike, when i was double-clicking on
the emacs desktop icon, all other windows would re-appear at the very same-time
than the emacs window..

Probably NOTABUG though unless there are small glitches outstanding in the exact
