I tried cleaning up my .local/share/applications directory and the mimeapps.list file to get rid of those annoying "phantom" open-with dialogues and apparently I seem to have broken something.

What program populates this directory in the first place?

I used to see an "open with" sub-menu when right-clicking a file, and it contained various applications I uninstalled (gedit, OO writer, monodevelop etc.). I went ahead and got rid of the .desktop files corresponding to those apps and removed their entries from the mimeapps.list file, but now I don't see an "open with" sub-menu. When I right click the file I just see a list of the apps.

I could sit down and rewrite my mimeapps.list, but I'd rather just regenerate it.

e, here's what the menu looks like:

and mimeapps.list:
