After this mornings update, my graphics menu is empty

Greetings all;

Still on wheezy. 

Sometime in the last 3-4 days, maybe not this mornings update, I needed 
to get some stuff out of my camera today, which I normally do with 

Chaseing the rodent up the menu list popup, I stop at graphics, expecting 
a lengthy popup.  Wait, but nothing.
Didn't that use to be kbuildcycoca or similar to restore that stuffs?

On further poking at this yellowjackets nest with kmenuedit, I find its 
all there, but buried an extra level deep, and does not show that extra 
level depth with a line item in the menu itself. Call up the kmenuedit 
handbook and look up copy/paste intending to move it all back to where 
it belongs, but theres no reaction to highlighting the extra level and 
pressing control+c, then moving back and highlighting the top level menu 
where it belongs and pressing control+V. No user feedback whatsoever.

So I decide to quit that as its obviously broken.  BUT! When I quit, it 
updates everything. So I go back to the graphics line, and voila! Its 
all back where it belongs.

I remember it used to do that, but while you were adjusting stuff so you 
could see the results in a few seconds. When did it start waiting until 
you quit?  Bad dog, no biscuit.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
