Short description of error
Unable to remove bookmark, when the directory was moved

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps

  1. Create a bookmark to some directory from the Open File menu.
  2. Close blender
  3. Move directory somewhere or rename it
  4. Start Blender and open File menu, you'll see that the bookmark is not active and there is no way to delete it.

P.S. the only way to delete old inactive bookmark is to restore the folder which the bookmark is linked to and then delete the bookmark.

That is no simple fix (until we get enhanced UIList that distinguish between 'active' and 'selected' items) - and you do can remove invalid bookmarks, just all of them at once, using Cleanup option in 'arrow down' menu to the right. So would not consider this as a bug currently, more as a general TODO for UILists.
