Subject: [gentoo-dev] [PATCH] desktop.eclass: Sanitize filename of desktop entry.
Date: Wed, 25 Mar 2020 08:24:32
make_desktop_entry() extracts the first component of the filename from
the Exec key in the desktop entry. This can however include arguments
which will end up in the filename. For example, www-client/links has
"Exec=links -g %u", resulting in links_-g_%u-links-2.desktop as the
name of the file.

The current extraction pattern originates from this CVS commit:
with the commit message "scrub exec filename in case someone does
something silly like pass the fullpath to a binary".

Before that commit, anything after a space in Exec would have been
removed. Restore that behaviour, and in addition use only the
executable's basename.

While at it, get rid of the sed call and handle everything in bash.
