Clean house in that user account's "~/.kde/share/applnk/" directory 
tree.  You can start by renaming the "applnk" directory to "applnk.save" 
and restarting that user.  This will create a new (but empty) "applnk" 

If this fixes the problem, check and see if you have some missing menu 
items.  If so, these will be apps that still use the old (non-XDG) menu 
entries.  Just copy them over from the "applnk.save" directory making 
new subdirectories as needed.
