Missing menu bar in Eclipse in Ubuntu 10.10

I lost two hours yesterday as my Elipses all missed the main menu bar. I had no problems with Eclipse at first after installing Ubuntu 10.10. But then yesterday I tried Unity and after realizing that it was useless, I logged out and in again into the normal Gnome shell. OK - time to do some serious work. So I started Eclipse, and...? NO MENUS!!! After a long while of searching I found out there was an environment variable: UBUNTU_MENUPROXY that fucked upp apps by moving the menu bar to .... somewhere ...!

I found out that the file /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80appmenu contained the line:

 export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY="libappmenu.so"

So I just edited the line using

sudo gedit /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80appmenu

put a comment char in front of the line to make it:

 #export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY="libappmenu.so"

Now all my Eclipses works again.
