    Restart
    Restart...

    Makes me think that one ask for confirmation (or display some kind of dialogue) while the other one doesn't. Plus the shortcuts for some of those differ (like Log Out having two different ones).

    As for getting the computer to shut it's pie hole...
    Taken from this thread My Computer is Talking and I need help on how to turn it off. Oh, and maybe when you were pressing random key combinations you hit on this...
    Also taken from another talking computer thread here.

    Did you hold down the Shift key when opening that menu? (just grasping for straws here :p)

    While you're there, check the Zoom Options to see if Show Preview Rectangle When Zoomed Out is checked. :)

    I can't believe nobody's mentioned repairing permissions too (for the double menu items). :p
