  I can't think of any obvious reason for this, but you can manually try to
figure out what's going on by looking in /usr/share/gnome.  There should be
a directory here, apps/, which contains the Gnome menus.  Under apps/, there
should be a symlink Debian/, which points to the Debian menus build by
menu-methods (/var/lib/gnome/Debian on my system).  Also, you have to enable
Debian menus from the Properties dialog of the foot button (I assume you did
that already, though, or you wouldn't even have an empty Debian menu)

  I'm not sure what the problem is beyond that.  Someone else might have more
