Hrm, I had referred to the mandriva patches. I thought I had made this change.
I'll go recheck.

Corrected. I'll also submit a fresh desktop file to the upstream tracker.

I'll have to report this issue upstream. I haven't had the chance of testing
the f16 rpm, I won't get my f16 system up until later this week. 

Thanks for the prompt comment. I've cancelled the cvs request. I'll request it
again once the issues are fixed.
