Bug Description

Binary package hint: ibus

The menu item for "IBus" is currently:

  System->Preferences->IBus Preferences

this duplicates the word "Preferences" when that is already a given.

Ideally the menu item should to altered to remove the word "Preferences".

Ideally, if someone changes the .desktop file to change the displayed menu item, they should also fix the tool tip so it offer meaningful information - most people won't know (or remember) what IBUS stands for or what it is, and probably shouldn't have to. The Preference menu may display "Input Method Properties" or "IBUS Input Method", then the tooltip should explain the entry allow for configuring specialized keyboard input methods, for example for languages with complex typing methods.

I'm running Lucid, and System->Preferences->IBus preferences is still IBus Preferences, and it still duplicates the preferences word, so this bug is not fixed.
