Apps Button deleteHomeShortcut issue


I am running into an issue with ApplicationPolicy's deleteHomeShortcut method not removing shortcuts while Android's Apps Button is enabled. The deleteHomeShortcut method returns true, and the launcher displays a toast saying the shortcut was deleted, but it is never actually removed. If the Apps Button is hidden, shortcuts are deleted normally. I would use SystemManager's setAppsButtonState to hide it while deleting my shortcuts, but there doesn't seem to be a way to manage the Apps Button inside the container, only the one outside of it. Any insight as to why this method is not actually deleting shortcuts would be appreciated.
