Description Ville Skyttä 2003-04-11 18:46:19 UTC
desktop-file-validate from desktop-file-utils-0.3-5 incorrectly stops checking
if the Encoding key is present in the checked .desktop file, no matter if the
value is correct or not.

This is due to a spurious "return FALSE" statement that should be either in the
same block as the fatal error output about the invalid encoding, or just plain
removed.  I think the latter approach is the correct one.

I'll attach a patch, please apply.

Fixed in CVS now, thanks very much:

	* src/validate.c (required_keys): don't stop checking as soon as
	we see an Encoding field. Fix from Ville Skytta
	<ville.skytta@iki.fi>

Leaving the bug open so I remember to build in rawhide.

Alex or Jonathan already built this in rawhide I believe.
