Yes, this is the "escaping problem" that I mentioned in my previous mail:

I'm able to launch ToolKid manually with the following command from the

  LANG=bg_BG.UTF-8 wine 'c:\comlogo\Comlogo.exe'

I believe this is a bug in GNOME for mishandling the following .desktop

  Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/vorlon/.wine" wine "C:\\comlogo\\Comlogo.exe"

The unquoted c:\\comlogo\\demo\\kidspac.lgp is collapsed to
c:comlogodemokidspac.lgp, which can't be found, resulting in the error

For this to have happened, something interpreting the .desktop file is
handling the \\ differently outside of quotes than inside of quotes.  That
definitely seems like a bug to me; and it should be a fixable one.
