This happens to anything that you have more than installed more than once 
in your system. For instance, I have a distribution-provided Skype and 
one I downloaded (the latest version).

Your patch isn't solving that. Why don't applications simply tell the 
session manager the path to their executables, or however they prefer to 
be run?

Of course it isn't going to solve the problem for old applications, but 
we'd be future-proofing against this problem happening again.

So, concluding: instead of saving the "kde version", save the command that 
the application wants to be run with.
