Subject: [gentoo-devhelp] make_desktop_entry icon doesn't work

I can't explain what is happening with the following lines:

   doicon some_icon.png
   make_desktop_entry binary Name some_icon

The desktop file is created in the KDE start menu, but no icon is 
showing.  Just the generic file icon.  If I change the above to:


   doicon some_icon.png
   make_desktop_entry binary Name "/usr/share/pixmaps/some_icon.png"

Then the icon is shown correctly.  What is going on?
