Your main problem is that you didn't follow simple instructions.

This does not read: Loged in as admin.   Click go to catalog .... 

But you should not be calling the menu you are saving 'index' ... In the 
demo the menu name is 'Products' ...You could of course create 'index' as a 
new (tree) Menu and then edit the product_tree component on index.html 
(through 'Content' in the top navigation) to point at 'index' instead of 
'Products'.  Then once all done make sure you wait a couple of minutes as it 
is not created directly (timed-build of 5 minutes). 

As this all is probably seeming a bit too complex, just go with the steps 
above (of course you can have a coffee instead of tea :)) ... 

To prove my point:

should only show 'test'  in the menu ... 

The only 'flaw' I'd say is that when you click the 'edit menu' button it 
should pop-up directly the current menu instead of letting you create a new
