Description of problem:
When creating a new launcher you can confuse the routine by inputting a name larger than 512 characters. If you enter a large name and press OK, the utility reports that the filename is too long. If you then select all the text within the name input field, remove it and type in a new smaller name, then press OK. The same message about the file name being too long is displayed, with the old name.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On the desktop within Gnome click the right mouse button.
2. From the menu select create launcher.
3. Enter a name, longer than 512 characters; I inputted 1234567890 several times.
4. Enter a command, I inputted /bin/rm.
5. Press OK.
6. On the message box press OK.
7. Use the mouse and invoke the select all option for the name field.
8. Over type a new smaller name.
9. Press OK. The same message appears.
A message box appears, stating filename too long.
The utility should use the second, shorter name.
Confirmed in gnome-panel-2.18.0-1.fc7.
should be fixed in tomorrow's rawhide.
