Ubuntu panel-applications menu doesn't skroll


Hi folks. I just upgraded to Ubuntu 9.04. I inherited a problem from previous versions. The panel doesn't display the applications menu. Only a tiny, useless gray strip shows. Thus, i can't not just run apps, but i can't open a shell terminal to do something radical either....!! Very frustrating.
Thanks in advance.

Hey, thanks..!
I tried what you suggested, but to no avail.
However i added a drawer to the panel with this "run" app. From there i can run apps that i don't see, for they are hidden in the applications menu. I wish i could also run a terminal from that applet. The question is, which is the command to open a terminal...???
