It seems your local setting has caused this problem. Please try following 
steps to fix this problem:

  - remove the directory $HOME/.config
  - restart KDE, you should probably start kbuildsycoca afterthat

Does it work again?
Comment 2 Mike Cohler 2006-07-11 06:42:22 EDT
I followed your instructions - and removed the directory .config and restarted KDE
This did not fix the problem, but after running kbuildsycoca then the K menu
seems better apart from the fact that IO now no longer have my Crossover menu
nor the associated Menu for Windows apps.  Also this did not re-create the
.config directory.

Comment 3 Mike Cohler 2006-07-11 07:25:49 EDT
The control centre menu was there after running kbuildsycoca but I had to
re-install Crossover to get the Crossover menu back.
Comment 4 Mike Cohler 2006-07-11 08:47:27 EDT
There seems to be a problem with this KDE update release - but also an
incompatibility with Crossover which has never occurred before now.  However
perhaps others are seeing this problem even without Crossover being installed. I
therefore think this is quite urgently in need of a fix.
Comment 5 Ngo Than 2006-07-11 09:42:52 EDT
Your menu setting has been lost in this case after removing the directory 
$HOME/.config. I will push new kdelibs package into fc5-update-testing today. 
It should resolve this issue.

Thanks for your report,
Comment 6 Mike Cohler 2006-07-13 08:35:33 EDT
The new kdelibs package (vers 0.4) fixes this and all is now well - so this bug
can be closed.
