[CentOS] Duplicate *.desktop entries for GNOME in /usr/share/applications

Today I noticed something strange. There seem to be a series of
duplicate desktop menu entries in /usr/share/applications.

Example: gedit.desktop and org.gnome.gedit.desktop

Other example: nautilus.desktop and org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop

This is annoying, since I usually edit some custom menu entries for my
users. Now, if I edit both files for a single application, I end up with
duplicate menu entries.

Any suggestions?
