using ../../desktop for icon shortcuts

Curious if anyone else out there has to use this.  We publish a single desktop with a number of published applications for each user once they sign on to the published desktop.  The published applications of course come from the pnagent..  The published applications show up just fine in the start menu, but we have to use the ../../desktop in the "additional submenu" area in order to get the application shortcuts to show up on each users desktop.

It's been this way for us for a long time and it appears it's still the case with 4.5 and 5.  I don't get it, why put "add icon to the clients desktop" if it doesn't even do anything?

I've got our pnagent service on the WI set to use both settings and even tried forcing it on the WI to add the icon to the users desktop, no go.  The only way is for us to use the ../../desktop manual option.

Anyone here ever run into this and find a solution?
