Docky won't retain "shortcuts" after reboot. - ubuntu karmic

using docky, i want to add a app to launch to it, i go to my main menu in gnome right click on app and click on "add launcher to desktop", drag icon to the docky and upon seeing the little plus sign drop it on and it aligns nicely. i do this to my frequented apps and its all good, its really cool.

i reboot......


they turn to some generic default white blah icon and when i attempted to find the cause i ran docky -v in terminal and i get this

(/usr/lib/docky/Docky.exe:2478): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_app_info_launch: assertion `G_IS_APP_INFO (appinfo)' failed

can someone point me in some direction as to how they would track that down.

Try log out and log back in instead of reboot. Logging out might "save" settings.

Not sure if desktop "save session" would help.That would probably just run docky but it has to save its own prefs.
