AFAIK gnome menu editing is broke in gnome 2.6 (2.4 LTSP 4.0 works I did 
I tried the same with gnome 2.6 but NO joy :-(

I ended up by giving everybody the same restricted menu except when they 
belong to 'root' group.
The 'stupid' but effective thing I did...
making the .desktop files NOT readable by others
.desktop files can be found in /usr/share/applications (and other dir.)
