Well the latter had no entries and the former had seven:
Kino.desktop  bluefish.desktop  claws-mail.desktop  cmyktool.desktop
gimp.desktop  inkscape.desktop  mimeinfo.cache
---------------------------------------- None of these have any
relation to the duplicate menu items. Since the duplicates are mostly
KDE programs I will look for menu items on that side.
