If you were PAYING ATTENTION you would of READ this ---> Now I go and try
the same thing from the example menu.xml in the source and it won't work...

I told you before that all I was doing is using the example menu in the
source, so pelase don't patronize people who explain what they're doing and
you fail to remember or see it...

So AGAIN I took the original menu.xml from the source and the only thing
I've done is added in the <separator/> like this example below and it's not

<menu id="apps-accessories-menu" label="Accessories">

I'm attaching the exact file from the source with only this change...
