Installed from:    Compiled sources

This is a bit of an odd and confusing one, so I'll try to explain it carefully...

I have two scripts I want to have "Autostart"

One is an actual script file (I call this "actual script"), and the other is a _link_ to a (completely different) script file (I'll call this "linked script").

I want the actual script to run on "Startup" and the linked script to run on "Pre-KDE Startup" (i.e. be sourced into the shell that startkde is run in).

Trouble is I set them up the wrong way around (i.e. the Run On setting for each was backwards). So I tried to swap them, but I can't get my changes applied.

With the actual script I was able to make it Run On "Startup," but then I couldn't move it back (not that I wanted too, but I thought I'd try for this bug report). 

With the linked script on the other hand I was not able to get it to change at all (in either direction).

So seems like something isn't quite working right...

I _was_ able to swap them both manually (i.e. `mv Autostart/script.sh env/`), and those changed were reflected in the Autostart module.

I think this report shares the same cause as bug 228795.  Feel free to reopen if you find the fix for bug 228795 does not fix this issue.
