Urk. So *that's* what happened. I was wondering about that.

How can I fix that now that I've screwed it up? I've looked around
in my home directory and the only menu file I can find is a file
for a menu entry that is specific to this specific username. And
it was because of that particular entry that I started doing the
update-menus as a user. But I use that package so rarely that I can
do without the menu entry. (It was a /net install of Star Office)
