This menu should have entries in it.  I had the same problem and
stumbled into the solution after reading man pages regarding "menu"
and "panel".  locate(1) is your friend!

1st, thing, though, is to log in (*not* su!) as root, and go into

Make sure that package "menu" is installed, then 'man update-menus'.

# update-menus --stdout > /tmp/menu-stdin
# /etc/menu-methods/gnome-panel -v < /tmp/menu-stdin
