Package: e17
Version: 0.16.999.062-1
Severity: normal

I just installed emacs 23 (on my Neo Freerunner) and noticed that the
illume launcher shows two identical emacs icons, with name "GNU Emacs 23".

Looking at /usr/share/applications/emacs23.desktop, I guessed that this
might be caused by the multiple values for Categories, which are


I experimented by changing this to


Result was that both emacs icons disappeared.

Experimented again by changing to


Result was that one emacs icon appeared.  (Which is the desired result.)

Therefore I suspect that e17

- adds one copy of the icon for each category that it recognises

- recognises 'Utility' and 'Development', but not 'TextEditor'.

I think e17 should only add one icon to the launcher, per .desktop file,
regardless of how many categories there are.
