    open apps are not appearing in taskbar

    I am rnning music and the app first appears when I play a file but does not appear in the task. Here is a screenshot.

    In order to get to the app, I have to do the thing where you bring your finger in from the left and it opens the most recent program, then I have to minimize it, then I have to click on the desktop icon to get back to the desktop, and then it appears.

    Why doesn't it appear when I open it?

Programs appearing twice in taskbar
I'm hoping there's a fix for this since I find it extremely annoying :) As you can see in the picture when I open a pinned program it doesn't extend the icon but creates a new icon in the taskbar. This is not happening with all programs like Opera, but iTunes and Skype are both prone to this...
