Hello Dustin, or anyone else affected,

  rather than the application icon

Bug description:
  I just upgraded to Wily yesterday, and it seems this regression has
  crept up again (it happened around the Utopic timeframe too).

  Install Byobu.

  sudo apt-get install byobu

  Open from the Unity Launcher.  Press Windows icon.  Type 'byobu'.
  Click on the Ubuntu terminal icon.  Byobu open in the default terminal
  (as specified in the byobu.desktop file), but the icon on the left in
  the unity bar is the Terminal icon, not the Byobu one.


   * The icon is not displayed properly in the unity bar on the left

  [Test Case]

   * sudo apt-get install -y byobu
   * Press the Unity launcher key
   * Type 'byobu' and press enter
   * See the gnome terminal icon (black square with a prompt, like >_ on it)
   * Install the package from wily-proposed
   * Close byobu, and launch it again
   * See the byobu logo (a three panel Japanese screen)

  [Regression Potential] 

   * None

  [Other Info]
   * One line fix in the byobu.desktop file
   * Already applied upstream and released in xenial
   * Diff looks like this:
