I think its probably intrinsic to the design of the plugin.  It reads in
all of the file (for the lines being read) and changing that would kill
performance in other cases.  It should not be changed for 2.0.6

Someone sent us a patch for the desktop files.  That should get looked at
however.  Peter: are you knowledgeable on such things?
