In the software sources .desktop file it has gksu duplicated:

This causes an issue with the startup notification.

Just joking, relax ;)

It's still present in gutsy, version 0.59.4.

Shouldn't be --description or -D used instead of --desktop?

Also, I noticed that using "gksu gksu" sometimes doesn't load the app, without any special output. That's how i found this bug.

There was no release yet. That is also why the bug is not marked as fix released.

The desktop file gives us the translation and the icon of the application.
