In that case, are you sure that the command to get the GNOME desktop
menu is still called

gnome-panel-control --main-menu


Maybe it changed, which would also invalidate your keybinding.

No, I just looked it up, and that's the right name, but neither

gnome-panel-control --main-menu


gnome-panel-control --run-dialog

appear to actually work when typed into a terminal or into gmrun.

So the commands themselves may be what's broken.

Maybe check GNOME Bugzilla.

Hope this helps,
