Ah, ah. Interesting. I did not know that Gnome's equivalent for '&' was 
'_' and I just realized that in all my (menu and association) tests the 
underscores were followed by a space. I'll update them to see what's up.

For the problem at hand, I modified the Name so it reads 'Underscore+foo 
_foo' but it passed uninterpreted in Gnome.

So apparently the consensus is that I should file a bug against KDE. So 
I'll do so on monday.
