guidedog menu item does not show in GNOME

Bug Description

Binary package hint: guidedog

guidedog puts it's .desktop entry into /usr/share/applnk/System/guidedog.desktop which is a deprecated location. KDE will still read these, but GNOME apparently does not and so there is no menu entry for guidedog after installing.

Ubuntu 8.04 development branch.
