What convention will mitigate this effect? Backslash at the end of line?
Or whitespace on the subsequent lines?

This is a user trap. Install new desktop files and nothing happens until
you run the 'magic' program.
fontconfig stat's directories looking for changes and automatically
regenerates a per-user cache. If this is possible, it will eliminate a
lot of errors.
Duplication of data should be under system control, not user control.
