[Debian-olpc-devel] Bug#584721: sugar-session-0.88: GDM 2.30 balks on .desktop files without comments

In Ubuntu, GDM 2.30 crashes when it encounters a .desktop file without a
'Comment=' line. I believe this is an upstream behavior, so it will
cause problems with that version hits unstable. I have attached a patch
which adds a comment line to the Sugar .desktop file so that I do not
have to introduce an Ubuntu delta.
