The correct way is to open applications-all-users:// in Nautilus. 
Generally, launchers being in the wrong folder is a bug, and needs to be
fixed.  I've submitted a patch to fix the OpenOffice.org launchers, you
may want to mail them as well to get this fix in the packages :)

Fixed with the latest releases I believe.

File bugs.  Read the vFolder Standard from freedesktop.org, and install
desktop-file-utils to validate the .desktop files.  Strangly enough,
gcombust works fine for me ;)
