Please dont remove functionality - I reported this to the list see

The second post contains my thoughts on a fix.

The problem seems to be that if desktop entries are in some
categories (I thought it only applied to Other but obviously wrong)
The Category line is missing from the desktop file, so when it is
edited gnome-vfs does not know which category to put it in.

The entry dissapears because
/etc/gnome-vfs-2.0/vfolders/application.vfolders has a AND keyword
for application and a dont show if empty (which stops it appearing in

This to me is a minor fix.
