Unfortunately, the xfce 4.4.x menu editor is known to not be very useful.

One approach would be to modify the .desktop file for the application(s)
that you want removed from the menu.  This [1] forum post does a pretty
decent job of explaining what you can do.  Please note that I'd recommend
modifying the .desktop file, and not removing it.

Xubuntu will have a functioning menu editor with the upcoming release,
Xubuntu 9.04.  (This is because Xubuntu will include Xfce 4.6  for that

Until then, I hope this helps.
