That was the keyword I was looking for, kmenuedit.  And it does work
here, thank you very much.  KDE3.3.0 here, on FC2 box.

When you clicked on save as you exited, did it pop up a slider showing
progress as it updated the menu's?  It did here.

Also, I could not find a repair, eg a setup, in the /opt/openoffice.org2.0
installation dir, so rather than update the menu item for that, I deleted

Cheers, Gene
