Gnome3 is used still in wheezy but it uses the old gnome-panel and gnome
menus while gnome-shell is the new GUI of Gnome3 (available on Sid). Both

Only sid has now gnome-shell so if you are in sid yes, you are talking

Try with the suggested step. Look at "/usr/share/applications" and edit
the corresponding "kdiff3.desktop" file to fit your needs. I mean, it
should be something like:
Categories=GNOME;GTK;Settings; <<-- watch this!
