Vuze is missing menu items in the global menu

Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Two menu items are missing from the global menu for Vuze when it is run in Unity - Torrent and Plugins.

To reproduce this, run vuze with the command:


and compare the menu displayed in the Vuze window to the global menu.

The lack of the plugin menu means you can't run the plugin wizard or alter settings for plugins like the speed scheduler.

In 12.04, the placeholder text appears for Torrent and Plugins in the global menu, but the menus themselves are empty.

This is still a problem in Oneiric... is there a way to disable the global menu on a per-application basis?

Running it with:


is a workaround for the problem, ie because it disables the global menu just for azureus.

thank you for your report - I could not reproduce in 12.04 - please reopen if this issue still exists in Ubuntu 12.04

In 12.04, the placeholders for the Torrents and Plugins menus now show in the global menu bar, but try clicking on them - the drop-down menus they expose are empy. So the bug is definitely still there.
