Bug Description

In certain desktop files, rather than having:

Icon=icon

The vendor will put:

Icon=/path/to/icon.png

In Unity under Oneiric, this prevents the application from being searchable via the dash.; the menu entry does not show up at all.

Could you please attach the desktop file causing the problem? I tried creating one with absolute path to an icon, but it showed up properly in the Dash.

Can't reproduce this either now. Reporter, can you provide an example of a .desktop file that exhibits this issue?
