Top Menu Editor Bugged (2.x)

when I create a “lvl 3 menu” (sub of a sub) it saves it… and the database displays it, however, it doesn’t show up on the front page, nor does it show up on the list of “edit” in the top menu… so, if it’s only designed to allow me to go 2 lvls (root and 1 sub menu) then there shouldn’t be an option to add a menu below a menu… being that there is, it needs to allow multiple categories deep…

i.e. catalog → Men’s Clothing → Shorts & Pants

as it stands now, I can create that in the “tree” and the database saves that information, however, it only shows catalog → Men’s Clothing in the “top menu” edit section of the admin area, and on the front of the site.
