No, what it opens is the alacarte menu editor.

Which I suspect cannot change anything unless run as root.

When I run it as root the buttons do move or delete items; but this does not affect the use menu.

More digging to do.
              Never worry about theory as long as the machinery
                        does what it's supposed to do.
