No, it's broken "out of the box".

Sorry, no. There's nothing in the FAQ about this bug, at least I can't find
it... Also, in 1.5-0.4, Update startmenu is not under Quit, it is under
Decorations. Maybe we're talking different versions...

In any case, I believe this is a bug -- any items placed in the feels user
subdir do not show up, instead, the contents of the backgrounds subdir shows
up under Feel. If I create a new user with a virgin GNUstep/Library dir, the
problem exists (xpm's from <ASroot>/backgrounds show up under Feel in the
startmenu). Could someone confirm? Perhaps there is a workaround? Also,
possibly this is an rpm problem... I installed the one built by RH on Sep 22
04:38:35 1998.
