I'm currently running 7.12, with the Omega theme as my presentational theme, and Rubik as my admin theme. I like the combination of using Rubik alongside Admin, but in this particular installation, Admin isn't displaying any administration links. The only links I have available to me are those to change my theme, and the create content links under its respective tab.

No idea where this patch came from, but it solves the issue you're reporting with a trivial fix to jquery.drilldown.js:

The patch at http://drupal.org/files/issues/admin_22.patch didn't fix this for me, even after clearing all the Drupal and browser caches.

I came across this same issue with the disappearing menu. I tried the patch, but found it did not fix the problem. With a little digging I eventually found that a CSS call from DHTML Menu (https://www.drupal.org/project/dhtml_menu) was using a 'display: none' attribute for the Admin's Administrator specific li/ul menu elements.

 * Menus that are initially collapsed must be hidden statically.
 * Otherwise, they will show up while the page renders, until JS runs.
li.dhtml-menu.start-collapsed ul {
  display: none;

Disabling DHTML Menu was the quick fix. I'll do without it for the time being instead of losing admin functionality. In the event the above patch really did provide a fix for something else, I'll leave that in as well.
