Bug Description

Due to bug 673302 global menus are currently disabled for Emacs in appmenu-gtk.

In my opinion, the underlying bug about incorrectly displayed dynamic menus should be fixed, and Emacs should them be removed from the blacklist in appmenu-gtk.

Fixing this would be great, even more so as the hardcoded black-list cannot be easily changed to add other names under which emacs is launched (e.g., to handle the case when you run emacs with --name option so it gets a different X11 profile but now happens to not be blacklisted anymore ...)
