Well, we're talking about a general bug (the GNOME desktop installed
by default on etch isn't completely "well-suited"), which is composed
by small bugs, sometimes in more than 10 packages.  So, I preferred
wrote a "big" mail instead of filing >20 bugs.  Moreover, I wasn't
sure they're all bugs and I wasn't aware of precedent discussion about

[skipping comments about the Debian menu because they have been
discussed later in the thread]

Please see bugs #407747 [1] and #407750 [2] for alacarte and bug
#407753 [3] for gnome-btdownload.

This is bug #407254 [4].

Another strange thing is that the default GNOME comes with grdesktop,
which has support only for the RemoteDesktop protocol.  At the same
time, however, vino is installed by default [5].  Thus, if a user
wants to share his GNOME desktop, he needs to install at least
vncviewer.  Isn't better to install tsclient (which supports RDP and
VNC by default) instead of grdesktop?

Thx, bye,

[5] vino's entry in the GNOME Preference dialog has unfortunately a
    misleading name, because it could lead the user to think that he
    will share his GNOME desktop with the RemoteDesktop protocol,
    while the VNC one is used instead...
