Hi Antonis,
Thanks for the report.
Qt3Support is not the reason. Kexi does not use menu at all but tabbed
toolbar [1], which does display with dbus menu or other non-native
menus. First thing to add would be "about application", "help" items
to the menu.

Kexi is still functional since it always display the tabbed toolbar.
It is up to discussion how the menu would be added and how that would
look, since the the menu is dynamic, it has elements appearing
depending on in what mode Kexi is executed, and the contents of each
tab is not linear (vertical) but grouped.
