Description of problem:
Applications cannot be added to Applications menu, unless the .desktop files are
dropped in ~/.gnome2/vfolders/applications.

I will create an attachement with the exact error message.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Applications menu, go into any other menu (e.g. Accessories).

3. Fill in the details of the application.
4. Click OK.

Actual Results:  Application (launcher) cannot be added.

Expected Results:  Should be possible to add new applications.

Same problem but can't remove either.

Apparently, this is done with Nautilus now. You have to be root to
edit applications:///. You can edit the favorites:/// as a regular
joe, though.
