[ic] Populating area and cat databases

I am currently trying to move our webstores to IC, setting up a demo
catalog based on Foundation (as suggested in the docs), but I ran into
problems with the auto-generation of a custom menu structure.
Each sku in my products file has a field containing
"category/subcategory", so area/cat would work for me right now. How can
I initially create the area/cat databases needed with the Admin UI and
(automatically) update this in the future ?
I tried Admin->Design->Menu Loader->combined and various other forms,
but all I can get is some more or less functional menu file in
include/menus/ and the tree.gdbm, the area and cat files are not touched
at all. There is also an error message upon publishing my menus that I
could not decrypt:
* Menu 'Untitled' saved to file include/menus/Untitled.txt. Active
on next access.
* Successfully wrote 73 lines to tree Untitled.
* Attempt to set slice of in read-only table tree
I know I could use the new menu with the component "Vertical category
list for the Menu-editor and tree-database" but this won't work with GDBM.
Most probably this is just a newbie question, so pointing me to the
right doc page might do ;-)
Thanks for any suggestions !
