Description Till Maas 2009-03-10 05:56:53 EDT
Description of problem:
The MimeType entry in .desktop files can contain multiple values and every value must have a trailing semicolon:

| Some keys can have multiple values. In such a case, the value of the key is 
| specified as a plural: for example, string(s). The multiple values should be 
| separated by a semicolon, and the value of the key should have a semicolon as 
| trailing character. Semicolons in these values need to be escaped using \;. 

But /usr/share/applications/gpk-install-catalog.desktop uses this entry:

    bugfix: fix the MimeType entry of gpk-install-catalog. Fixes rh#489473

I'll merge this to stable also, so F10 will get this on the next upstream release (3 weeks time). If you need this quicker, yell, and I'll patch F10 in the spec file.

Thanks for reporting this.
