  * Do not restore focus if a quicklist is opened during launcher key
    navigation. (LP: #932486)
  * Forward first key event that happens on top of the blank window to
    the lockscreen. (LP: #1308265)
  * Hide launcher to avoid damaging window when not needed. Also make
    sure that pressure effect works fine (previous fix has been reverted
    because of this!). (LP: #1301394)
  * Make sure scope_views_[filter.id] exists before using operator[] on
    it. (LP: #926979)
  * Make sure that signals are auto-desconnected when
    XdndStartStopNotifierImp is destroyed. (LP: #1432231)

  showing quicklist from launcher keynav mode focuses last application

Status in Unity:
  In Progress
Status in Unity 7.2 series:

Status in unity package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  To reproduce:

  0) Have at least one application window open
  1) Enter launcher keynav mode with Alt+F1

   * Note that when entering keynav mode, the application loses focus.
  THe triangle to the right of it's launcher icon is no longer drawn,
  and the window title is not displayed in the panel.

  2) Select a launcher icon with the Up or Down keys.
  3) Show the quicklist by pressing Right.

   * Note that the application becomes active again - it's window title
  is drawn to the panel, and the triangle to the right of the launcher
  icon is drawn again.

  4) Collapse the quicklist by pressing Left.

   * The app loses focus again.

  This seems like inconsistent behavior to me... either the app should never lose focus when we enter keynav mode, or should not be activated when we show a quicklist.
