Bug Description

When starting kubuntu with a small screen so the netbook settings are used and then switching to plasma-desktop, the shortcut fo kmail in the favourites tab of kickoff has no icon and cannot launch kmail2 as it tries to launch kmail(1). You need to search for kmail2 in the applications tab to start it.

This can be fixed by pointing the entry in the favorites list to kmail2 instead of kmail.

[Test Case]
1) Start kubuntu with a small screen so the netbook settings are used
2) go to system settings -> workspace behaviour -> workspace and switch the workspace type to desktop.
3) open kickoff and you'll see the broken entry for kmail.
4) install kubuntu-netbook-default-settings from oneiric-proposed
5) start a new netbook user session and repeat steps 2-3, you should see the working kmail2 entry now.

[Regression Potential]
The fix only touches that one entry, and it can't really get anymore broken than it currently is.
