Dashboard menu placement hides theme options

Just Getting Started

Hi. Since there were no menu items for the dashboard plugin, the only way to access it was via the dashboard, which I didn't like, so I downgraded back to the updates plugin. I just accidentally upgraded to the latest version of the dashboard plugin, and now there is a menu item for WPMU DEV. That's great, but now my theme's options menu is MIA. So I guess the theme's menu was hiding the WPMU menu? But now it is the other way around. The theme is Vantage by AppThemes http://www.appthemes.com/themes/vantage/
Before I downgrade back to the updates plugin once again, I thought I'd share this with you. I'll hold off on the downgrade until Friday, in case you need more info.
