Comment:

 Replying to [comment:2 bbjimmy]:
 > Most installers execute a shell script to place a symlink in the Deskbar
 menu. Beos used ~/config/be for the Deskbar menu. Haiku is now using
 ~/config/settings/deskbar for the Deskbar menu. I don't think that
 B_USER_DESKBAR_MENU_DIRECTORY will override a directory path placed in a
 shell script or compiled installer for a legacy (BoOS r5)  program.

 If it doesn't, that's just an indication that the program should use
 find_directory (either the function or the cmdline utility). :-)

 Anyway, since I'm sure many programs/installers have hardcoded the path,
 we do need the compatibility link in the right place.

 Fixed in hrev43374.
