I have just installed it, and libxfce4menu from trunk as well, but the
only category in xfce4-appfinder is the "All" category, and it's empty.
I don't have xfdesktop installed, so I suppose it uses the .menu file
provided by xfdesktop by default.

It works perfectly fine if I run it like this:
xfce4-appfinder /etc/xdg/menus/

Another thing is when I want to select a category with the keyboard:
Every time I select a category, the focus switches to the filter entry.
Then, I have to press tab/key down before switching to the next category
in the list.

It would be nice with a command line option that make xfce4-appfinder
close when an application is executed. Like, I want to start an
application, so I click on the xfce4-appfinder panel launcher and
launches the application. Then I want to forget all about
xfce4-appfinder until the next time I want to launch an application.
