Kmenu folder icons disappeared

I did some editing to the kmenu a while back and when I saved my changes, all of the descriptive folder icons turned into regular "folder" icons and I have not been able to bring back the default icons. The actual application icons are not affected. I have tried kbuildsycoca and update-menus to no avail. I have also tried switching icon themes but that only gives me regular "folder" icons in another theme - not the unique ones that correspond to the different categories of applications in the kmenu. Interestingly, if I open kmenuedit, the correct folder icons appear, but when I save changes (or close w/o saving), I still get the ordinary folder icons in the kmenu itself. I also tried changing permissions in /usr/share/icons, but that didn't work either.

I am running kde 3.4 on Mandriva 2006. I have another computer also running kde 3.4 on Mandriva '06 that isn't having this problem, so if there are any settings or files that can be compared, I can certainly do that if someone could point me in the right direction.

Can anyone help me get my folder icons back?

Thanks in advance.
