applications not in gnome menu / vfolder status in gnome-panel


I'm using gnome-panel 2.1.0 with garnome. My problem is that most of
the installed gnome applications don't appear in the Gnome menu.

The old .desktop files are imported well: all files under
$prefix/share/gnome/apps/**.desktop appear in the menu.

However, the new applications, such as eog, use the new vfolder policy
for desktops files (from what I understood), and install these files
in $prefix/share/applications/**.desktop

The problem seems to be that gnome-panel (as of 2.1.0) does not seeks
into $prefix/applications to display these .desktop files in the gnome
menu. Thus, I can't launch eog from the gnome panel menu, for example.

Has anybody a solution to this ? Does gnome-panel lack the feature of
reading .desktop files in share/applications to add them into the
menu. Or is it the application's fault, not to put the .desktop files
in the right place ?
