Title:
  gnome-control-center doesn't ignore '%f' in desktop file

Status in gnome-control-center package in Ubuntu:
  New

Bug description:
  The "Desktop Entry Specification" says about the "Exec" key in
  .desktop files (in http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-
  spec/latest/ar01s06.html):

  If the application should not open any file the %f, %u, %F and %U
  field codes must be removed from the command line and ignored.

  gnome-control-center doesn't do that but calls the command with the
  "%f" still in the command line. This leads to errors when adding a
  program to the g-c-c that takes an optional file parameter.
