Nightly install leaves >1 "Open With" menu item

Nightly install leaves >1 "Open With" menu item

On OS X, it seems the ST2 installer leaves more than one Sublime Text 2 item in Finder's Open With menu (3, right now). Actually I'm prepared to believe it's more complex than that: I also have duplicate XCode and iOS Simulator items (2 each, right now).

It *is* more complex than ST2, but seems easy to fix. I'll share advice from:
http://itpixie.com/2011/05/fix-duplicat ... Fxa8TN6NAg

to run this command in a terminal session (it's one command, don't allow line breaks):

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

Then relaunch Finder (right click Finder in the Dock, choose Relaunch).
