Okay, just for others it appears to be UBUNTU_MENUPROXY

And, the good news is that it works now with or without appmenu-gtk
being installed. Either way I get my buffer list AND with it
uninstalled I no longer get the spew of warnings.

Not sure if this is a fix or not ...

Any idea where this variable is being set? Oh ... and this might end
up being a Ubunutu bug. In:

   /etc/X11/Xsession.d

there is a file:

  80appmenu

which has one line:

  export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY="libappmenu.so"

Removing appmenu-gtk does NOT remove this file! So, when removing
appmemu one should manually remove that as well. It could be a problem
with my system being upgraded from 9.10 to 10.10 (not reinstalled).
Reason I'm thinking this is that if I reinstall appmenu-gtk I don't
get this file back. Mind you, reinstalling appmenu does mean I lose
the buffer menu updates in emacs.

So, I think the workaround is:

  - remove appmenu-gtk
  - make sure the file /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80appmenu

is removed.

Sure hope this helps.
