I knew I had another question: Why did starthere pick up the rpmsave files?
Why didn't it just use the <>.desktop files?
Isn't this a bug in starthere?
start-here isn't anything special, it's just a regular file manager window. So
it displays all the files.
I'm not sure yet if we'll remove the %config, or hack gnome-vfs to filter out
the .rpmsave files.
If it displays all files in the directory, then why both with <>.desktop instead
of just <>.
If it is looking only for desktop files then why pick up the rpmsave files?
gnome-vfs-1.0.5-3 should filter out the rpmsave files.
