Bug#392807: kdebase-data introduces an imcompatability to the freedesktop.org menu specification

Package: kdebase-data
Version: 4:3.5.5a-1
Severity: important

-- System Information:
Debian Release: testing/unstable
  APT prefers unstable
  APT policy: (991, 'unstable')
Architecture: i386 (i686)
Kernel: Linux 2.6.17-grml
Locale: LANG=de_AT@euro, LC_CTYPE=de_AT@euro (ignored: LC_ALL set to 

-- no debconf information

/etc/xdg/menus contains a subdirectory calles kde-applications-merged which
seems to be used by KDE instead of applications-merged

However, according to the lastest available specification on
freedesktop.org, the directoy applications-merged is the only valid one:

"... Note that a system that uses either gnome-applications.menu or
kde-applications.menu depending on the desktop environment in use must still
use applications-merged as the default merge directory in both cases."

from http://standards.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/latest/ar01s02.html

Not sure if the respective GNOME or XFCE package breaks this as well.

The result of this derivation is that menus installed by packages or
installers following the published specification do not show up in the
user's application menu, but all entries of said menus appear in a
lost&found style menu.
