Hi everbody!

KWeather doesn't work when it's run under a non-us locale like de. Now I found 
out that klauncher doesn't start the DCOP weather service. KWeather tells 
klauncher to start the service by using 

Now the problem is the .desktop file of the weather service. The content looks 
like this:

[Desktop Entry]

After removing all the translated Name[...] lines the KWeather applet started 
to work.

Why does KLauncher use the translated names when using startServiceByName()? 
Does this really make sense?
