Menuing is totally wonky with the interaction between KDE's native menuing, 
the FreeDesktop standard and the Debian menu generation system.

Here's some ideas.

Move or delete ~/.local and ~/.config - they may be overriding global menu 

Run update-menus as root to rebuild the menus.  Note that when you run 
update-menus as root, the global default menus are rebuilt.  If you run 
update-menus as a normal user, only your menu files in ~/.local and ~/.config 
get redone.  Note that if you run update-menus as a user right after using 
the menu editor to change things, your changes will be blown away & replaced 
by defaults.

Yes. the menus need fixing.  Especially with regards to usability.  There are 
too many submenus in the K menu, and they have too many items.  And there 
should not be a separate Debian subtree - everything in there needs to be put 
in KDE's regular categories.
