Description of problem:
The openbox desktop menu won't open most of KDE's .desktop files.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.4.x (behavior observed in multiple versions)
How reproducible: use the right-click menu in Openbox to try to open a KDE application
Actual results: none
Expected results: application opens
Additional info: Deleting the [-caption "%c"] argument from the "exec" line of the .desktop file solves the problem, but I'd have to do it for every KDE .desktop file.
Behavior observed on multiple computers, both 32 and 64 bit.

fix xdg-menu for KDE -caption .desktop files
The menu is generated by the xdg-menu python script, it already removes the %F style field codes, but doesn't handle -caption "%c", plus leaving -caption with no argument doesn't work.
The patch fixes xdg-menu, so that it replaces '-caption "%c"' with '-caption "Name"'.
Included in openbox-3.5.0-2. Thanks!
