Menu is native gtk2 widget. So if it's not available then it's gtk2 bug, not lazarus.

Of course it is a native gtk2 widget - maybe there is some option that has to be set to show the ">" button?

Kate in the screenshot is a KDE application and uses QT. If you compile Lazarus with QT, there indeed is the arrow and list. I would guess GTK2 has such an options, too, but maybe not.
