When I develop Gtk# applications sometimes I need to click the items in the menubar. However sometimes when I tried to expand a menu, the menu item does not expand. Sometimes the menu item does not expand at all, and sometimes the menu item keeps expanded for just 0.3 (approximately) seconds and then collapses back.

The only way I can get my menubar to work is to run the app from the MonoDevelop IDE.  Otherwise the menubar never gets displayed.

same for me, impossible to expand File or edit menu or anything else in the menu bar, so impossible to save (ctrl-S don't work neither)
the only way is to close mono with the cross, it asks to save before quiting, say yes and re launch it, and 10 mn later same problem.
