    There were many problems with the "Places" handling, mainly caused by the fact that KDE used two files to store them (the traditional ~/.kde4/share/apps/kfileplaces/bookmarks.xml, and the freedesktop.org standard ~/.local/share/user-places.xbel) and synchronizing them all the time.
    Those problems have been fixed now by simply not using ~/.kde4/share/apps/kfileplaces/bookmarks.xml any more.

    So what you experienced now are actually consequences of the bugs that have been in KDE before the latest updates.

    You should be able to rearrange the "Places" though, or hide/remove entries (by right-clicking on them), and now your changes should even be remembered...
    If you have problems, try to delete ~/.local/share/user-places.xbel and start fresh. It might contain garbage because of the earlier problems.

    Yes, you are right. I can rearrange them now.
    Thank you!
