When I install Opera and open it the first time an Opera launcher shows up in Unity. I then set it to be kept. However, after having used Opera a couple of times the launcher stops working, and when I open Opera from the Applications menu I either get no Opera launcher, or I get another icon for Opera Widget managemnt. It's like Unity "forgets" Opera and thinks the widget manager/installer is he Opera application. Since Opera works fine in Gnome this seems to be a Unity problem. Any idea how to resolve it? I'm using Opera 11.10 Beta on fully updated Natty Beta x64.

This has been fixed with the latest ubuntu 11.04 + updates and the latest opera release. Unstick opera from unity launcher, remove/purge opera, download it and install it again.
