Dashboard menu placement hides theme options

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.
