Had the same issue on FC1 with KDE after apt-get upgrade - menu only has 
about 5 or 6 items.

I fixed it by rolling back to the previous version of the 'redhat-menus' 
package. I'm not sure how to do that using the apt-* commands but if you 
use synaptic, search for redhat-menus, click on the Expert tab, select 
the previous version and apply, you should get your original menu back. 
I hope it works as well for Gnome.

Course, this is just a bandaid solution - every subsequent upgrade you 
perform will want to install the faulty(?) redhat-menus package. Is 
there someone out there who knows whether the package is buggy or have I 
missed some subtle point somewhere?
