I use gentoo in a Virtualbox guest machine.

I have a user gent in my virtual machine.

When this user is member of group vboxguest, the "Applications" menu in gnome have missing applications. "Programming", "System Tools" & "Utilities" sub-menus are empty.
gentoo ~ # id gent
uid=1000(gent) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),10(wheel),987(vboxsf),988(vboxguest),989(docker)

When this user is not member of group vboxguest, the "Applications" menu is OK. "Programming", "System Tools" & "Utilities" sub-menus are not empty. But in this case, I loose virtualbox better integration.
gentoo ~ # id gent
uid=1000(gent) gid=100(users) groups=100(users),10(wheel),987(vboxsf),989(docker)

I am in gentoo stable, except for Gnome (gnome 3.14 with systemd) and virtualbox-guest-additions (4.3.26)
