So far this is specced this way by design. I can see how this isn't
exactly awesome but I'm not sure whether we should change unity8's
behavior (perhaps to allow an always visible launcher depending on
screen size instead of usage mode) or if the settings page should hint
that this will work only in desktop mode.

Added ubuntu-ux to clarify
