thanks for the suggestion. r65943 and r65946 add such an action. I decided
to cut the name (Open VM Manager) because the .desktop spec says that the
name needs to be unambiguous within the application and should not include
the application name.

It's a little bit confusing that this action is always shown, also for the
VM manager itself, but I hope that users can live with it. The next 5.1.x
maintenance release will contain this change as well.
