Bug description:
I am using this entry for launching Spotify using WINE:

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=padsp env WINEPREFIX="/home/sveint/.wine" wine "C:\\Programfiler\\Spotify\\spotify.exe" 

It launches Spotify, but it will show Spotify as a new icon on Docky, which is not the behaviour I expected. Another strange thing is that I cannot pin this newly created (and working) icon to Docky: the "Pin to dock" option doesn't show for this specific icon. So basically I have to have two spotify icons on Docky in order to have a Spotify launcher on Docky and Spotify running.

Another thing is that this new icon doesn't update window title properly. Sometimes it changes to currently playing song, sometimes not. Haven't found the trigger to make it update yet...

Docky version: 2.1.0 bzr docky r1490 ppa
Kernel version:
CLR version: 2.0.50727.1433
