Hi,

I'm currently cleaning my bugzilla up and I've found this bug:

Bug #470482 - YaST2 group .desktop files do not comply to FreeDesktop
standard [1] which results in too much noise in .xsession-errors
See https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=470482

According to comments, YaST Group Desktop files cause many
.xsession-errors because:

* They contain Type="Application"
* They (of course) do not contain any Exec=/some/binary

There are two proposed solutions:

* Add fake Exec=... line
* Move the desktop files out of /usr/share/applications

I don't like any of the proposed solutions much, so I'm asking *you*
whether we have another option or what do you think of the proposed ones?

Thanks in advance
Lukas
