I meant /usr/share/applications because this is the default for XDG menu 
entries, i.e. to check of .desktop files installed by the distribution 
contain those categories.

Actually this might be the cause.

I found another posting by David Faure on this matter [1], basically a follow 
up on the thread you linked to in your first posting.

Since David seemed to believe it might be caused by the distro's menu files 
and, if I remember correclty from one of your other postings, you are running 
Fedora, I am adding Rex to CC.

Rex, this is this thread's archive reference [2]
