Description of problem:
In "Edit K Menu", I often want to copy an item, paste it at the same menu and
modify certain parts of the item, (i.e. there are now two of the same items in
that menu, with slightly different properties)
The problem is it doesn't work..
It pastes all right, and I can edit the properties of the pasted item to make it
different from the original item, but the new properties overwrite the original
item, and the menu doesn't show the new item up..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click the K icon, and select "Menu Editor"
2. Add the following item in a directory:
Name: Ben's Computer
Command: ssh mechbsc1
Icon: <the one that looks like a terminal>
Run in terminal: <selected>
<leave all other properties empty>
3. Close the K Menu editor
4. Bring up the K Menu editor again..
5. Select the item you just added
6. Select "Copy", then "Paste" (A new item should appear)
7. Modify the new item's details as follows
Name: John's Computer
Command: telnet johncomp1
<Leave the other details unchanged>
Actual Results: From here you will see that the properties you entered into the
new item have been updated in the original item, and closing an bringing the K
menu editor up again shows the problem to have remained..
Expected Results: The two items should be different, and closing the K menu
editor and bringing it up again should show the two items remaining intact
