Duplicate entries in ksycoca4

Hi

On my system, KStandardDirs::resourceDirs("applications") returns (among 
others)
/home/pletourn/kde/share/applications
	coming from "KDEDIR" + "share/" + "applications"
/home/pletourn/kde/share/applications/kde4
	coming from "XDG_APPS_INSTALL_DIR"
which cause duplicate apps entries in ksycoca4

With the included patch, installdir is no longer returned when it starts with 
one of the previous canditates

Is that an acceptable solution?
