Yes, this looks like a packaging bug ... and we *just* got Bibledit 3.8
into Debian and synced into Karmic, ready for Karmic feature freeze next
week -- and it has the very same issue!

Yes, thanks for the bug report.  I'll see if I can figure it out in the
next few days.  The icon is there in the top left of the bibledit
window, and it is there when you Alt-Tab to switch focus... so why isn't
it in the Gnome menus too?

I'll find it eventually, but probably not tonight (almost 11pm here).  I
have some vague memory that we had an issue with this before, and
thought we have fixed it...
