Guys, do you agree with this suggestion?
If xchat supports startup notification, then yes. Not sure if it does
too much to just add the line to the desktop file if xchat doesn't
actually use it properly. It might add a cursor during startup of the
app, but without xchat working with the startup-notification system
the cursor is just guessing. Perhaps it's better to have it guessing
than nothing at all, a bug should be filed upstream about this if
xchat doesn't support startup-n.
The question remaining here is: Does XChat support startup notification?
This shouldn't be in NEEDINFO, since the info needed is something any
developer could investigate and find out, not info from the bug reporter.
