Unfortunately, in Ubuntu 8.10, you don't seem to be able to enable menu 
tearoffs in gnome at all.  I don't know if Gnome switched it off or 
what, but selecting it in gconf does nothing.  I've searched the web for 
info about why it doesn't work (or even /if/ it doesn't work - maybe 
it's just me) but with no luck.
