Yes you can, but that's not the point. I think maybe we should be allowed to
use system vars for paths in the .desktop files, instead of having to
allways use absolute paths or to use hacks like that.
Don't know if the problem is implementation specific or general, but either
way system vars should be regarded in the spec.
