r14-xdg-update script error when TDM is starting TDE

From: Stefan Krusche <linux@...>

Good Day everyone,

after the latest update and after I logged in into TDM some xmessage
boxes popped up before starting TDE and informed me of some errors.

The second time I start my PC and TDE it's only one xmessage box.

Clicking away these boxes result in starting a TDE session normally and
I haven't observed any problems yet.

What can I do to satisfy r14-xdg-update or at least silence it?

Any hint is appreciated.

Kind regards,
Stefan Krusche

====== More Information =====

I've only found this information regarding the complaint of this
r14-xdg-update script in /var/tmp/tdecache-$USER:

$ cat r14-xdg-update-validation-test9.txt

And there are a couple of lines in ~/.xsession-errors which don't tell
me more than "error code is 9" which seems to mean that test number 9
of that script failed (see above).

That R14_UPDATE_TEST9 basically greps the tdemenu-config-file:

grep "<Filename>kde-" "$USER_DIR/.config/menus/"

and accordingly finds some entries because there are some with that
string, old config files brought from good old kde3 which exist under
~/ and as they are properly registered with tdemenu always have worked.
AIUI it doesn't matter what the file name really is but I never got
familiar with the way the configuration of TDE's menus is implemented
in XML and so on.

If I'd rename the files so that r14-xdg-update is happy and change the
entries in accordingly the "error"
probably would vanish I guess. But maybe r14-xdg-update shouldn't
complain in the first place or make it clear what actually the problem
is which I don't see.
