Actually it's nor really related to nemo, it's happening since the split of nautilus-desktop as a separate binary from nautilus. Bamf somehow not considering desktop window as valid bamf window (see https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/wz32KF7Kqx/). As a result when indicator-appmenu tries to track menu it fails. We could just simply ignore tracking menus for desktop_windows for now.
