Yes, this is what I expect to see and what I think is the intended
operation of the menus.

This is what I thought was the aberrant behaviour.

Ok - it's very interesting since it seems like it is some interaction
with mu4e that causes the different behaviour.

My emacs and mu4e are both self compiled and then installed (Debian
Wheezy) using Gnu Stow. If I use *either* of (require 'org-mu4e) or
(require 'org-contacts) then the sub-sub menu disappears.

I guess it's not really a major problem, but I do find that huge options
menu to be useful.
