Essentially it's because:
	- the menu system has to work if menu isn't installed
	- in different locales xfdesktop uses menu.xml.locale instead of
	- our menu-method only updates menu.xml since this is what will
	  be read if it's run as a user.

I think we've covered all the cases *except* the one you've found.  i.e.
if you run update-menus as a user it'll work fine.

I suppose we need the menu method to:
	- test if the current locale has a corresponding menu.xml.blah
	- if not just do as it does now, otherwise add a menudefs.hook
	  line into it.

Obviously being a config file you can fix it by editing menu.xml.fi (or
es Rudy) to include menudefs.hook.

I need to think about this a bit more.  Automatically editing config
files is evil really.
