An out-of-the-box install of SuSE8.0 Pro
I did do an online update from SuSE but this screwed up the help centre so I
may have upset other stuff!

There are a few
If I add an item in Menu Editor in the root (ie top level in the tree view)
it is placed in home/chris/.kde/share/applnk but it does NOT appear in THE
menu. If I add an item in an existing node in the Menu Edit tree then in the
home/chris/.kde/share/applnk folder it adds the top level folder of the tree
view and the item within it. But ... yep no change in the menu itself.
It appears from inspection that Menu Editor is showing a combination of
home/chris/.kde/share/applnk AND opt/kde3/share/applnk.
It appears from inspection that THE menu is made up of
etc/opt/kde3/share/applnk only. I note that Above Bookmarks is a line then
above that is a dashed line. I assume between here is where the user entries
that do not have a common top level item with 'share' should show? I have
nothing in here.
