Still trying for "legacy-only" menus

Hi folks,

	Thanks to James Richard Tyrer <tyrerj at> for pointing
me in the right direction.  His suggestion works fine.

	I was originally just replacing /etc/xdg/menus/
Now that I've moved my configuration into:


and substituted JRT's version of, thing behave the
way I want them to.

	One caveat for others like me who are trying to do this:
if you copy any *.desktop files from FC2 into your "legacy" tree,
you'll need to edit out the "Categories" lines in the files,
otherwise the applications won't show up on the menu.

	Next up: trying to understand WHY it works....
