patch to correct desktop entry issue for multiple file selections in nautilus
Description of problem: Nautilus opens several separate instances of gvim when you choose "open with.. vim" from the right-click menu, when you have several files selected in the nautilus window, instead of using a single instance
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a nautilus window on a folder with several text files
2. drag-select more than one, or control-click to select more than one
3. choose Open With... and from the popup, choose Vi iMproved
nautilus opens a separate instance of gvim for each file
gvim opens all files in one instance, which you switch around using buffer commands or the buffers menu at the top.
changing %f to %F in the /usr/share/applications/fedora-gvim.desktop file as per the Desktop Entry Specifications at http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/desktop-entry-spec-1.0.html#exec-variables solves the problem
