alacarte no longer detects top level System menu

After a recent 'yum update', alacarte no longer detects the top level System
menu. When alacarte is launched the Menus window displays only Applications and
its submenus. The top level Systems menu has gone missing.
I filed a bug with gnome.org [#398391]. The author of Alacarte responded:

This is by design. In the latest 2.17.x releases System->Preferences and
System->Administration were replaced with a link to the control center. Thus no
more menu to edit.
Hmmm... Will Redhat be adopting this strategy?
I'm going to add this to the FC7Blocker list until we figure out how we're going
to handle this.
There are some additional comments recently attached to
that you may wish to review.
We want the menus back, I think, and thus we'll also want menu editing back for
This was fixed a while ago
