comment How to create a URL link on the Unity desktop
I edited the answer and tried to explain the concept of drag and drop, although I have the suspicion you already knew that. If it still doesn't work for you, maybe you want to report a bug - look there how to do that.

comment How to create a URL link on the Unity desktop
I'm still running Ubuntu 12.04, but I tried it in a VM running 13.04 with Unity, and it still works the same.

comment What's the best way to use parallel bzip2 and gzip by default?
I have been using the symlinks since 2011 now and didn't see any breakage (apart from the case mentioned in the edit). And if such subtle differences are not found and reported, we will be stuck with non-parallel versions forever. If you use TAR_OPTIONS="--use-compress-program=pbzip2" it doesn't seem like you can differentiate between bzip2 and gzip.
