This still affects Ubuntu 16.04.
I see that gnome-software shows the title as gedit rather than Text
Editor. That leads me to believe that there is a problem with the
.desktop files or the appstream info gedit is providing.
Maybe Unity is using a special value and that's why Unity shows Text
Editor in the Dash but gedit is used everywhere else.
