Issue Report: After Update: Steam opens in new window, doesn't use proper icon
After recently updating the client it now opens up in a new window,
meaning that if you run it for example by clicking the pinned launcher in the unity bar(its icon is themed) it will launch as a different application, which doesn't use the icon in your /usr/share/icons folder, and also doesn't have the jumplist, as the jumplist entries are stored in the usual launcher.

Using Ubuntu 12.10 + Unity

I also have this problem on 12.04. The pinned launcher in the unity bar disappears and a new icon appears for the running steam application. Once I close steam there is no more icon in the unity bar.

**** update ****
An icon remains and I could move it in the bar but new icons keep on appearing further below when I run steam.

I have the same problem on 12.10. Sometimes even I have seen 3 new icons (one for each window, perhaps?)

That seems to be because in the task manager, it shows up as MainThrd, not Steam.

Seems to be fixed again
But @aka, the process is still called MainThrd, so this probably wasn't the problem.
