Since it took me quite some time to understand this, here's a recipe:

* emacs -Q

* M-x menu-bar-mode, so that menu-bar is disabled

* M-x semantic-mode

* M-x global-ede-mode

* Now do C-Mouse 3 to open the "global menu" popup (which I didn't know
  existed until yesterday...)

Look at the "Development" menu at the bottom. It might be disabled. If
not, try the recipe again - it seems to be a race condition.

If the item is disabled, turn on the menu-bar, and you'll see that the
Development menu there is working just fine.

The culprit is this: Both minor-modes, semantic and ede, should use the
"Development" menu, but you can use one or the other or both
together. This hack in semantic.el is used to accomplish this:

    (define-key map [menu-bar cedet-menu]
      (list 'menu-item "Development" cedet-menu-map
            :enable (quote (not (bound-and-true-p global-ede-mode)))))

If you remove the :enable clause, the menu-bar displays two "CEDET-menu"
items underneath "Development", which is what this hack avoids. (Note
however that the "Global menu" popup will display correctly in this
case, so there's the first inconsistency between the two).

With this hack, the menu-bar works fine. It seems however that the
"Global Menu" popup displays *either* the item from Semantic *or* the
one from EDE, but only the latter is enabled. This is also where I guess
the race is happening.

I hope this information is sufficient to track this down. Otherwise I'll
try to come up with an isolated test case.

BTW, I managed to workaround this issue in CEDET trunk by using

            :enable (quote (not (and menu-bar-mode
                                     (bound-and-true-p global-ede-mode))))))
