Bug Description

Earlier gnome-menus versions built a menu cache in /usr/share/applications/desktop.<locale>.cache. This patch got dropped in

gnome-menus (3.1.5-0ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.
  * debian/watch: Watch for unstable versions, and switch to bz2.
  * Disable 22_desktop-cache.patch for now, needs to be rewritten, and not
    that important with Unity any more.

Unfortunately we forgot to remove the old cache files. libgmenu does not look at them any more, but they might be used by other software, and as they are out of date now these would work incorrectly.

There's more cleanup to do after that (dropping triggers, cache generation script, etc.), but that's not very important and can happen in P. I'll commit that cleanup to the branch now.

  * debian/gnome-menus.postinst: Drop old menu cache on upgrade, to avoid
    using old data in applications which use the cache. (LP: #868219)
