"xdg-desktop-menu install" requires a logout the first time
Binary package hint: xdg-utils
When installing a new application for the first time, the new menu entry doesn't appear immediately. You have to log out and log back in again. However, installing further applications works fine.
To reproduce (on a clean Gutsy system):
1. Create a new user:
$ sudo adduser bob
2. Log in as "bob"
3. Install the sample .desktop file:
$ xdg-desktop-menu install test-test.desktop
4. Notice that no entry appears in the Applications-
5. Log out and log back in again.
6. Menu item is now visible.
From this point on, any further programs added show up immediately.
As an alternative to logging out, running alacarte and then immediately quitting it also makes the new entry appear.
