seems to work for me
Does manually running
make any difference ?
No, it don't. But I think I figure out where the problem is.
I have removed the "TryExec" directive at the end of the .desktop files and it worked well. In broffice.org-*.desktop files the "TryExec" points to OpenOffice.org executable filenames. Maybe that's why the whole thing happens. I also noticed that these .desktop files have different permissions from other ones. Most files are rw-r--r-- but these ones are read-only.
Indeed, the TryExec is on the wrong set of .desktops, though it didn't make a serious difference here. Fix checked in, will be in >= 3.0.0-4.2
No TryExec in broffice.org-* now
