Ditto here. Students often have to work from a pool of computers, so Bert and 
I put in some code to make Etoys work off even a removable media or shared 
folder with noexec. A script can be launched off even a noexec volume. All it 
needs is a desktop file with Exec="sh /media/blah/etoys/etoys.sh".

Currently, squeakvm can work off any directory, so the *.desktop file also needs 
to support this feature. But I don't know of any way to refer to the path 
containing the *.desktop file in the spec and I am forced to work with patching 
it after every move. Any idea on how to fix this?
