Some of the items in the Wine menu are given a prefix that is their entire path.

enter image description here

The items that don't have the long prefix seem to work fine, but those that do, don't respond to the Properties button or double-click in the menu editor. They take a lot of space, and look ugly, but I can't rename them.

I've tried editing their associated files, there doesn't appear to be anything different about them to the ones that are working fine. They weren't always like that - it just happened after an upgrade one day and it's been like that ever since.

@ali Possibly, but I didn't see anything in those comments about it displaying the long file names in the menus, or about being unable to display the edit box. I'll take another look at the file structure when I get back. – Patrick Mar 21 '11 at 12:20
