It's possible that Ubuntu has changed the environment variables that control the menu.
Or maybe we aren't setting the environment variables properly.
Can you post the output of "env" running within an xpra session?
Please also specify an application I can use for testing.

Basically any application works, like gnome-terminal or firefox.

The env contains UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= which is the documented way of disabling the global menus.
From a quick googling, they might have changed it to UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 - can you try using that? (edit your /etc/xpra/conf.d/60_server.conf)

Setting UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 doesn't seem to change anything here.

Ok, setting UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 doesn't seem to do anything at all anymore, not even outside of xpra.

There seems to be a bug about that, but from 2015... https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/1505280
