Creating an Icon in KDE

I noticed that every icon in KDE has the name of the applicaion like konquer and something after it like  a "%U"

Well I wrote a simple command like rdesktop -fullscreen -fullcolor and created an icon for it.  I get the hour glass for some time and eventually it works.   Do I need to put something after it like %U to give the controll back to the OS so I do not get that hour glass that eats up the system ?

Explained in another way, I have an icon that  is a simple script I wrote and it hour glasses for a while untill it works.   If I execute it from the command line it comes up much faster.   Do I need to modify the script to call it with a mouse under X windows / kde  ?
