I have a laptop, which is sometimes disconnected from the network. A lot
of the files I work with are on the network. I am not sure I like the
idea of removing all the network files whenever I lose the network

I think it's better to wait until the user selects a file to check for
it still being there, and if it's not then just raise an error,
indicating that the problem may be due to a missing network connection.

An alternative may be to deactivate ("grey out") the menu entries for
files which we can't access, but as you say with disconnected network
Windows (and sometimes also Linux) can become very slow and we don't
want kst to hang on startup due to that. Either we thread the check, or
we do it the way I described above. I think the easy way is enough...

And if we keep your first menu entry, I'd suggest naming it "Remove
Non-Existent Files" instead of "Check Files On Existence", and adding a
separator below it.
