alacarte and Wine Application menu entries

I'm on Fedora 8 running under Gnome. When opening alacarte to attempt to delete a game shortcut entry from "Wine>Programs>" in the Applications menu, after right clicking on the entry and choosing delete, I get no response. I've even attempted to hide it to no avail. I've already uninstalled using the the Wine uninstaller. Rebooting does nothing, and the issue is obviously repeatable. My question is this, is there a dynamic location where these Start Menu entries are located/updated from or is there a way to force alacarte to remove this entry? If you need more information please be specific, I'm slowly migrating over to 'nix.

I already tried:
No Wine folder here.


.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/MyUserName/Start Menu/
No entry for the game I've already deleted. Are the shortcuts dynamically updated from the entires here? Seems like that would be a good idea, but it doesn't seem to be the case.

Thanks in advance,

They should be in ~/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs/
