I'd love to use the terminal and an editor to fix these, but like you
I don't know where the menus are stored, so the missing piece is also
the stumbling block.

Xfce4 (4.1) uses menulibre, not alacarte.  That's the one that doesn't
work for me.

What's weirder is that these all seem to work on my work desktop but
not at home.  At work I have a dual quad-Xeon (12GB of RAM), at home I
have a Phenom II x6 (16GB).

It's been a much more interesting upgrade than I was hoping for,
especially since I had so little trouble with it at work.
