Thanks to Michael, I managed to fix the problem.

Menudrake apparently added four lines with no "title" tag in file /etc/menu/menudrakeentry:

?package(menu): needs="kde" section="/" title="." icon="default_section.xpm" charset="ISO-8859-1"
?package(menu): needs="kde" section="./" title="." icon="default_section.xpm" charset="ISO-8859-1"
?package(menu): needs="kde" section="././" title="" icon="default_section.xpm" charset="ISO-8859-1"
?package(menu): needs="kde" section="./" title="" icon="default_section.xpm" charset="ISO-8859-1"

I deleted these four lines, re-ran 

update-menus -n -v

.. and now everything is OK again.  Still, though something seems to be buggy with Menudrake.

Thanks again for the support,
