Probably, yes.  In fact, not just jumplist-started instances, but any 
instance (also the default one) opened from the task bar icon.

No, I'm not sure at all.  I just added this because the man page told me 
for AppLaunchCmd: "This is only effective if combined with an AppName 
option and the command-line option --store-taskbar-properties to make it 
persistent.".  And I *did* have to add an AppLaunchCmd to the .minttyrc, 
otherwise the default task bar icon action would open a window without 
the AppID, but also without a login shell.
