You see, the xfce_4_2 branch is useful for tracking down
problems before RCs and releases ;).

Well, the mailchecker is also a kind of launcher; when I click
the mailckecker, it launches my mail program (mozilla -mail).
The regular launchers do have a check button "Attach menu to
launcher" in the Item properties dialog.
In (2), I want to say that I miss that check button in the
mailchecker properties dialog. That's all.
