Problem launching KDE launchers from GNOME

When i launch kpackage (KDE RPM Package manager) from the
KDE Menu's System submenu under GNOME/sawfish, i get a main
appwindow with %s in the titlebar and a message box opens immediatly:
Titlebar: Error - %c
Content: File not found: /root/%i
Steps to Reproduce:
1. startx (gnome desktop with sawfish WM)
2. Foot -> KDE Menus -> System -> Package Manager
Actual Results: The bug appeared
Expected Results: No bug.
Installed almost everything (incl. a few packages from the powertools CD)
No patches installed yet.
this problem appears only by using GNOME. The panel in GNOME cannot handle the
%c %i %m %u in desktop file.
Currently, the code in GNOME only enables % parsing when reading
a "KDE Desktop Entry"; but the code to identify these is only
picking up old .kdelnk files not new .desktop files.
I'll work on a fix.
It's great that you fixed this, but could you let us all in on where we can find
a fix for this? I looked on the download area for 7.1 and there does not appear
to be anything there that addresses this proble. This is the one remaining
problem I have to resolve in my 6.0 to 7.1 upgrade.
