OK, here I go :-)
- I've remove "A " from the summary, and the trailing dot too. (1)
- Dump SOURCE2 (the icon) as you don't use it
  - or -
- Install SOURCE2 in /usr/share/pixmaps/ and remove the full path from
  the desktop entry to make it themeable.
- Remove the "grep" BuildRequires, I don't think it's useful
- Eventually put the %doc right after the %defattr, as this is more common

Now... I don't have 3D acceleration on my laptop (Mobility 9600...), so
I've only gone though the spec... I'll leave others "review" the part where
you actually run the program :-/


(1) I've seen too many redundant or useless stuff in the summary...
repeating other tags there should be avoided IMHO, and keeping it short
(removing "A " for instance) and leaving the final formatting for later
(the trailing dot) seem like sane choices to me.
