Description Assen Totin 2014-02-25 07:22:28 UTC
Description of problem:
gnome-session-properties does not save a start-up job which is same as previously deleted one.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-session-properties. Create a new start-up job. Save it. Close gnome-session-properties. 
2. Re-open gnome-session-properties. Verify the job created at step 1 exists. Delete it. Close gnome-session-properties. 
3. Re-open gnome-session-properties. Verify the delete job is absent. Create a new one, identical to the deleted job. Save it. Verify the job is in the list of start-up jobs. Close gnome-session-properties
4. Re-open gnome-session-properties. The job created at step 3 is misisng fom the list.

Actual results:
A new job is not saved if it matches a previously deleted one.

Expected results:
A new job should always be saved.

Additional info:
It could be even worse: it seems the job does not even have to be identical to a delete one; if the command line is different, the job is still not saved. Likely the bug occurs even if only the name of the job matches a previously deleted one.
