Creating Shortcuts With Different Icons for Multiple rdesktop Connections

We use rdesktop to run those few programs that we can't run on Linux on a Windows Remote Desktop Server. I like to make launchers for these, so they seem more like real applications for users. Unfortunately, when you have several rdesktop (or Wine, Java, etc.) applications, and assign an icon to them, it will choose only one icon to display in the launcher in Unity/Ubuntu. This is how you fix that.
