[gutsy] "Prepare for shipping to end user"-launcher remains in System -> Administration after setup

Bug #145281 reported by Christopher Denter on 2007-09-26

Bug Description

This is gutsy with latest updates.
After installing gutsy in OEM mode (for testing purposes) and setting up the system I launched oem-config-prepare.
I got the 4-step-procedure on next reboot and everything worked correctly (although step 4 tends to take a long time).
After I logged in with my newly created user, the launcher "Prepare for shipping to end user" still appears in System -> Administration.

A customer who accidentally clicks this messes up his system, because the next time he boots he is asked to repeat the 4-step-procedure to create a new user.

I think this launcher should be removed from the menu in order to not cause confusion with customers / users.

I - of course - meant:

oem-config (1.23) gutsy; urgency=low

  * busybox sed doesn't support making backup files when editing in place
    (e.g. 'sed -i.oem'); chroot to edit kdmrc as well.
  * Fix GTK .desktop filename used in oem-config-prepare gksudo invocation.
  * Install .desktop files under /usr/share/applications/ at first install
    rather than shipping them there in the .debs, and remove them once
    oem-config-firstboot has been run (LP: #145281).
  * Set HOME in oem-config-dm so that iceauth is happier.
  * Start dcopserver before kwin (LP: #145226).
  * Run kdesktop too to fix the background in KDE.
  * Update translations from Rosetta.
