KDE menu entry cannot be deleted!

I recently installed a greek windows program using wine and wine automatically created a kmenu entry for that program. The program`s name was in greek though and in kmenu it displayed with unreadable characters (small boxes). I tried to delete it many times using the menu editor but it still was there. I uninstalled it (because it didn`t work with wine) and it was still in kmenu.
So, I went to $HOME/.kde/share/applnk/wine and deleted the .desktop file corresponding to this app and finally, it disappeared from its place in kmenu.
However, it appeared again in the Applications submenu as kmm. This entry cannot be deleted either but fortunately I can change its name and the command it launches.

How can I delete it though????
I have kde 3.4.1
