Is there a way to disable this?  I've never looked in Recent Documents.
I have ~/.bash_history for that ;)  Hmm, I have the Search for Files
still in Places too, apparently.  Why does that stay there even though I
removed Tracker on first boot?  

I think we need a way to edit the Places menu (if one doesn't exist
already...if it does, tell me where), just like we can edit the
Applications menu.  I want to remove those two, Connect to Server, and
Network.  Why is CD/DVD creator still in there if we have Brasero now?
If it's staying there, it ought to open Brasero instead of Nautilus,
shouldn't it?
