As it turned out, there was corruption in /etc/xdg/menus/kde4-applications.menu. I replaced it with one from my laptop, and viola... kmenuedit works and I have all of my categories back...

Has the crossover installation ran with root privileges? If not, the
changes it made should be restricted to somewhere in the home directory?
Then you could just undo the changes by removing or better renaming parts
of ~/.local or ~/.config unless you did other big changes.

How about .local/share/applications or .config/menus/applications-
kmenuedit.menu? Maybe thats also somewhere documented on
http://userbase.kde.org oder http://freedesktop.org?
