Comment 13 for bug 1532226

I have the same issue (fresh install, new home dir). Affected applications: nautilus, gedit, eclipse. I have found the following workaround to restore menus for current session:
* delete ~/.cache/compizconfig-1
* relogin
... and all will be ok until the next reboot.

It looks like this bug occurs after update *.db files in ~/.cache/compizconfig-1 directory
