I have ZDM 7.0.1 HP5 running on an OES Linux server. The XP workstation
are running ZFDAgent

In other ZDM deployments which are a variety of 6.5 & 7.0.1 running on
NetWare servers I have always been able to arrange icons in the app
launcher by using special characters in the Application Icon Title. For
example, ~Home Folder or 1.MS Word

Now no matter what special characters I use in the app title, the icons
are always arranged in alphabetical order. In fact the special
characters, parentheses, numbers, etc. are totally ignored.

Does anyone have a clue as to why this is happening and hopfully how to
fix it?

thanks in advance for any and all information.
