Assuming you've updated the start menu, check the file permissions.

I wonder if it's just a bad theme. Which is it? get it offa themes.org?
Have you tried other themes?

I just run gnome-session and choose AfterStep from the control center;
as a side note, I've always had to change AfterStep.desktop to read
"SessionManaged=false". But this shouldn't be your problem.

.xinitrc:
xset s off &
xset m 3 3 &

gnome-session

/i.
