here's a video clip of the problem..

i have set a function to strip the file:// away and if no file path check
/usr/share/applications $HOME/.local/share/appications and $HOME/Desktop as
this is where files have been that have had no path. but it does not seem
accurate enough for me , i'm guessing the location but my not be the right

the clip shows me dropping some icons on the app and the debugger showing
the raw dropped Drag.Data before and after processing.
even with panel icons some show full path some only filename ??  annoyingly
Will this be a QT bug or a gambas one?

Thanks all
