Bug Description

Just installed ubuntu 16.04
Then added the Loki Beta PPA and installed elementary-desktop

Everything looks Great... but for some reason I found that in

/usr/share/applications/pantheon-calculator.desktop

The lines that should have read:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Calculator
Comment=Solve simple equations

Instead read:

[Desktop Entry]
__Name=Calculator
__Comment=Solve simple equations

This causes the Calc to be an unamed program... and when launched... it runs... but had no name in the Dock... and a Cogwheel for the icon.

Removing the underscores fixes the issue.
