Bob, I trashed the pList as you suggested. On restarting a new one was created, but the item I was trying to eliminate was there again, so I recovered the old pList from the trash. Any chance I should have dumped the trash before restarting?

(I use PListEdit Pro so it's easy for me but TextEdit will also work if you are careful.) Under Root/useritems/CustomListItems inspect each key to find the offending key. Delete it. Reboot. I googled how. You can also just delete the plist file and the Finder will give you a fresh one when you reboot, but none of your other shortcuts will be there.
