Oh, yes -- those very few times I actually use the application menu I get 
lost, too, because of the more applications sub menu. And it's usually just a 
few apps that are in their compared to the long list in the application menu.

On the other hand, why not just get rid of the applications menu? Put the 
applictions:/ ioslave by default on the panel, make it read/write so it can 
be used to organize it and reserve the k-menu for important stuff like recent 
documents, create new documents, login/logout, preferences and bookmarks. 
Maybe add a little triangle or something to the app icons (or three dots to 
the names) that are actually folders. Maybe hide already running applications 
that cannot be started a second time?

Somehow, the applications:/Office/ sheet is a lo less intimidating than the 
menu, perhaps because of the big, friendly icons.
