Yes, this is where the menus have always gone. They are totally FUBAR. All apps
are dumped in 'Lost & Found'. There are menu folders that are moved around in
the menu tree. 'Terminal Applications' is now under 'Internet'?? It used to be
under System. Something must have 'blown up' regarding the menu. I've never seen
such a mess. Now the questions becomes how do we figure out what happened?

Can I just delete all the menus and have them regenerated somehow?

  This is exactly why we need a "Code Freeze" and 10 days to identify and fix.

I'm in. I have the install and several recent package sets we can work from.
I'll have a list together soon and let's start putting our heads together.

Do you want to start a new etherpad?
