Comment:
locate found 3 files:

/usr/share/app-install/desktop/gedit.desktop
/usr/share/applications/gedit.desktop
/home/john/.local/share/applications/gedit.desktop

When I removed the one in .local it immediately appeared back in the
menu and the "open with" dialog (fixing my problem).

The one in .local had the following contents:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=gedit
MimeType=application/x-extension-nfo;
Exec=gedit
Type=Application
Terminal=false
NoDisplay=true

This file was last modified 2005-01-06 but the "Text Editor" entries did
not disappear until a recent upgrade of something.
