No answer, but I have been noticing after upgrading to F12 that a lot
of stuff in my panels (Gnome) keep disappearing. I've been
half-assuming that it's my children either trying to get back at me
for being busy on the computer when they want to play games or just
not realizing they're hitting the right mouse button and accidentally
selecting delete in the context menu.

But the same happened on my iBook after I upgraded it to F12, and I
don't think my son had his hands on it between the install and the
reboot yesterday.

But I don't find them in lost+found, either.

Anyway, my memory is that KDE also lets you put things (back) in the
menus, etc. by dragging and dropping and/or right-clicking.
