Sorry, I should have mentioned this: It was only recently I began
experiencing this overriding, and I suspect it was when I upgrade 
from 10.4.10 to 10.4.11.  I see it also in 10.5.1.  (I can mention
also that the application shortcuts being overridden are in AlphaX,
a Carbon application, in case this is of any relevance.)

Thanks for the tip!

Thanks.  This worked, and it looks like a very useful utility in general.

(I wonder if these adjustments will also be overwritten at upgrade?)
