Description of problem:
After upgrading to the new null beta I found that my 'Favorites' menu was gone.
Unfortunately this is where my Crossover Office and Crossover Plugin menus
lived. I could find no way to replace them. I've since reinstalled Redhat 7.3,
but thought I'd report the bug anyway.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install as an Upgrade

Actual Results:  'Favorites' menu items are missing, and I can no longer access
the Crossover programs.

Expected Results:  I would expect the upgrade to at most move menu items and
certainly *not* delete them.

Forgot to mention that this system only has Gnome installed. I don't know if it
exhibits the same behavior under KDE.

Well they aren't deleted, just not moved where you can find them.
Open ~/.gnome/apps in nautilus and you should be able to drag them onto the
desktop or onto the panel.

CrossOver has worked around this in newer versions, I think.

Sounds like a GNOME 1.4 -> 2.0 migration issue - not much we can do
about that now ...
