What seems to have happened is that you have updated your RPMS for all
of KDE again to a new version.  Part of that upgrade was an upgrade to
the package redhat-menus-3.7.1-2.noarch.rpm ... once you upgraded that
package to a new one, your default menus would have changed.

I am not even sure if the older (original) redhat-menus will work with
the new KDE.

I have tried to convey in the past the need to NOT use non CentOS
repos ... or to greatly restrict what these repos can update on a CentOS
machine (if one wants to keep their machine CentOS and not Fedora Core
or Rawhide).
