Splunk Search

Why do standard navigation menu items disappear on custom dashboards?

In the latest versions of Splunk 6.2+, the navigation menu items disappear on any custom dashboard.
Only the first "Search" item remains visible: it's not very comfortable to have missing "Reports" or "Dashboards" shortcuts.

On main Search page (and on other standard search pages):
alt text

On custom Advanced XML dashboards:
alt text

My custom dashboards are stored in search app.
The .../search/default/data/ui/nav/default.xml has no changes as well:

<nav search_view="search" color="#65A637">
  <view name="search" default="true" />
  <view name="pivot" />
  <view name="reports" />
  <view name="alerts" />
  <view name="dashboards" />
</nav>

There wasn't such issue in Splunk 6.1.

Is this a bug or did I miss something in configuration?

Did you figure out what did this? I have the same problem now, and it annoy the hell out of me! Peeking around, I found another app that does the same, the ... looks about the same, and the navigations default.xml looks the same; but it's menu works.

No, I didn't, the problem is still there in 6.2.4.
I have only one default.xml as above, and my custom dashboards are based on Sideview Utils.

Do you have any other navigation menus set to Global that might be overriding the display?

Well, how can I check that the menu is global?
I do have several default.xml files in Splunk directory (per each application), but there is no any global-related option there.
