I'm using the unedited menu.xml from CVS. It's in ~/.xfce4/menu.xml. I
inserted some logging statements into the menu parser, and it is
being found and parsed.

Here's the menu file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <title name="Desktop Menu" visible="yes" />
    <app name="Terminal" cmd="xterm" term="no" icon="xterm.png"/>
    <app name="Run Program..." cmd="xfrun4"/> <!-- The rest have
defaults -->
    <menu name="Settings" visible="yes">
        <app name="All Settings" cmd="xfce-setting-show"/>
        <app name="Backdrop" cmd="xfce-setting-show backdrop"/>
    <app name="Midnight Commander" cmd="mc" term="yes"/>
    <app name="Help" cmd="xfhelp"/>
    <!-- This doesn't work yet -->
    <builtin name="quit" visible="no"/>
