Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

Installed applications does not always show in Gnome Panel menus after their installation. If I enter "edit menus", I can see buttons for those programs and they're active. If I click to the proper submenu of Applications, it's not there. I have to trigger 'killall gnome-panel' manually.

The same happens if I edit one of entries (e.g. changing 'gnome-terminal' to 'gnome-terminal --geometry=140x40') - the command is not updated at once, only after killing gnome-panel process.

There is even a more annoying and easier to reproduce situation - enter alacarte, edit a shortcut (for example, I change 'gnome-terminal' to 'gnome-terminal --geometry=140x35'), close alacarte and the shortcut works as before. Only after killing the panel it works properly...

This is REALLY annoying.
