patch from the upstream bug

Description of problem:
Gedit on a standard Fedora 21 install comes with two jumplist actions: "Open a New Window" and "Open a New Document". Neither of those work out of the box.

The problem seems to be caused by the "DBusActivatable=True" line in the org.gnome.gedit desktop file. Removing that line restores the functionality of the additional actions.

(see the upstream bug for more details; it turned out to be more complicated than two lines in .desktop file, see the attached patch)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start gedit
2.right click its icon in the jump list and select either of the two actions

Actual results:
no response

Expected results:
it should happen
