With 4.2, can't add to MATE dock or Plank #3029
On Ubuntu MATE 18.10, I just upgraded from 4.1.0 (from the Ubuntu archive) to 4.2.0 from the quodlibet-stable PPA. Now I cannot add Quod Libet to the MATE Dock Applet dock. When I launch 4.2, it opened as a second app icon, and this icon is missing the "pin" option that other apps have. If I unpin the first icon, I still can't pin the second one.
Similarly, when I tried Plank, QL doesn't have the "keep in dock" option.
When I downgrade to the 4.1.0-1 package, it works normally again.
I don't have a custom .desktop file or anything else I know of that should effect this. Just to be safe, I tried a new user account and saw the same behavior.
FWIW I believe both of these docks use bamfdaemon for app matching.
A banf developer did not think it's their bug. I was hoping for something obvious they'd see ;-) They suggested looking in the syslog, but I don't see anything related to banf, just some gtk theme warnings.
I did notice one thing, however. With 4.1, the MATE Dock and Plank list Quod Libet as "Quod Libet" in the menu/tooltip. With 4.2, it is listed as " - Quod Libet". It looks like the actual window is called " - Quod Libet" in both cases. (I think I didn't see this before because it doesn't show up this way in the MATE Dock when I click the icon of QL I had pinned with 4.1, but it show up this way if I launch it from the terminal. With Plank, it shows up this way either way.)
