Ah, you must have personalized menus turned on.  It is generally
recommended that blind users disable that feature, as it is not always
apparent when something isn't showing.  There's a visual cue for it
but that doesn't do much good for the blind.

I'm not sure how you would go about disabling that if the check box in
jaws basic settings -> windows system parameters dialog doesn't do it.
 The version of excel I have on this computer doesn't do the hidden
menu bit and excel 2007 has a much different layout.
