Bug Description

When you launch an app with startProcess, it will reverse the arguments from the desktop file. That's not bitten us until now due to sheer luck.

I encountered this bug by using an Exec line like so:
Exec=aa-exec -p ubuntu-calculator-app -- qmlscene /usr/share/ubuntu-calculator-app/ubuntu-calculator-app.qml

After installing the jenkins packages and rebooting, the above line works as expected.
