As I pointed in this bug report, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/netbook-launcher/+bug/605996, the bug still present, but i discovered that renaming apps with shorter names and rebooting, solves the issue, at lest for me and apps involved.

Try this workaround

I've noticed that scrolling the menu will align the text properly but this only works on long menus that can actually be scrolled. Menus that fit the screen will not look right unless shortening the application names.
