GNOME Shell: displays only Name in the applications menu; displays only Name
when you hover over "favourite" apps in the dock; type-ahead search appears
to look in the Name and the Comment but not the GenericName.

For those interested in investigating different desktops' menus, Ekiga in
unstable makes a good test-case (although probably not a great example of
doing menu entries right), because all its strings are different:

    Name=Ekiga Softphone
    GenericName=IP Telephony, VoIP and Video Conferencing
    Comment=Talk to people over the Internet

   title="Ekiga" \
