Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125825
"add new item to this menu" always greyed out

Description of problem:
For the application menu from the gnome panel, the "Add new item to
this menu" option is always disabled. There is no way to add things
to the menus.
This is the documented way to add items to the menu and it is always
disabled. The docs don't mention any way that this would be "locked out".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Open the application menu and select any submenu (e.g. Preferences).
Move over the opened submenu and right click.
Select "Entire Menu" (last entry).
Actual Results: The "Add new item to this menu" is greyed out.
Expected Results: Menu entry should be selectable.
This system was upgraded from Core 1.
This is a horrible bug. Please, please, please fix this!
For instance, when I upgraded file-roller, a
duplicate meny entry was created. I cannot delete or add
the duplicate entry--even as root. When aps are updated they will
create duplicate icons or place them in the wrong place.
I can't understand why someone would be so mean as
to leave this broken. If it was a "feature," it is most
certainly not! Why would anyone in their right
mind would want to be prohibited from modifying
these menus? If you want to lock people out of the
menus ask for a root password, but please, ODG
make it possible.
Even in a corporate situation---this would rot!
Think of the Poor Little Menus, Please!
Thanks : )
Gnome's bug people says that this is a Fedor Core 2 Bug.
