	After converting back to Trinity once more from KDE3 on my OpenSuSE Leap 15 
system, I now have two accounts that are producing these entries. (The last 
time I was running Trinity only one account was doing it.)
	I don't quite understand what causes this, or what the fix is.  Do I merely 
remove the entries from $HOME/.config/menus/applications-tdemenuedit.menu? 
What will prevent them from coming back?

	By the way, the messages that appear at login time are seriously inadequate 
from the standpoint of explaining what to do.  The second message merely 
refers to "applications-tdemenuedit.menu" with no information about its 
location, and to the contents 
of "/var/tmp/tdecache-$USER/r14-xdg-update-validation-test9.txt", with no 
instructions that explain their relationship or what changes to make.

Hi Michele,

I don’t have kchmviewer installed but the reference (I use ack) I get with It, is from the kchmviewer package Itself.

When the last tdebase package was built and what commits were made on It just before?

I’ll build kchmviewer later in the afternoon.

Hi Greg, nothing to do with kchmviewer specifically.

The problem is with the migration of a profile from KDE3 to TDE done by /opt/trinity/bin/starttde. Somehow Leslie seems to have issues

Additional info: appartently the problem is related to a kde4 entry in PATH. Again from mailing list:

    Well, those startup XDG messages are gone, anyway. 

> And what was the problematic variable?
    There was a reference to /usr/lib64/kde4 in $PATH.
