It's a known bug. There are two main ways to solve it, choose the one that you prefere:

  1. in gnome-tweak-tool disability the handling of the desktop by file manager
  2. remove all the packages related to appmenu.

No, I'm sorry. I now use Gnome-Shell and the problem is gone. – dadexix86 Apr 5 '12 at 8:30
