Gnome menu entry disappered..

I updated from sarge to etch today (with lost of hassle), and after i solved the apt-get related problem, i encountered another problem, most of my Apps shortcut disappeared from the Gnome menu...

For example, my "Music Player" (in fact it is rhythmbox) icon is no longer in the menu, the weird thing is that, i still have an Music Player entry in /usr/share/applications/

And lots of KDE application appeared in the Gnome menu...

How can i fix that?
