OK, I must be doing something worse wrong. Even if I put it into the 
system directory, I don't get a new choice.

I thought maybe I needed to rebuild the sycoca, so I tried running 
"kbuildsyscoca4". That didn't help.

Here's the file, for reference:

[rgheck at rghquad actions]$ pwd
[rgheck at rghquad actions]$ cat mount.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
X-KDE-Solid-Predicate=[ [ StorageVolume.ignored == false AND [ 
StorageVolume.usage == 'FileSystem' OR StorageVolume.usage == 
'Encrypted' ] ] ]

[Desktop Action open]
Exec=gnome-mount -n -h %i
