See my follow-up just posted.  I don't want to edit the K-menu
(or applications menu if that is what it is called).

Yes, I used the classic menu.  This however didn't seem to affect
my ability to add my own customized mouse menus (buttons 1 and 2).

In KDE 3.5.8 , this is Main menu -> Control Center -> Desktop
  -> Behavior -> General tab -> Mouse Button Actions
  -> left/middle/right button -> Edit

I downgraded back to KDE 3.5.x after my experience with KDE 4
in November.
