I'm having a problem with the menu editor of GNOME where I can't delete some obsolete entries from alacarte/main menu. I don't mean simply un-checking the boxes so that it doesn't show up on the Applications menu (I can do this fine), but I mean I can't delete the entries from there at all! I tried re-installing and upgrading alacarte and also tried removing the software, then re-installing it to no avail. I'd like to know what I can do about it.

Thanks!

P.S. I don't seem to see any other posts about this situation on Google. Hmm...
