Recent Items not so recent - Mac Applications & Software

A minor but persistent annoyance in 10.2.6: The "Recent Items" submenu seems to always include items that I haven't used for weeks, and exclude others I've used in past days. I can't find any folder of aliases a la OS9 to verify the actual dates, but I know it's not always bumping off the oldest items first....
