Bug Description

Binary package hint: icewm

IceWM 1.3.7~pre2-1 from natty/universe installs two .desktop files into /usr/share/xessions. This is confusing. Apparently, the IceWM.desktop file is also much shorter (possibly incomplete) compared to icewm-session.desktop. Please install only one file.

Icewm-session also won't run under Natty. Icewm will but then the startup file never gets run.
