Bug Description

It would be great if the global menu bar would show when the HUD opens. This would make the focus-follows-mouse workflow much better as it would provide a sane mapping for locking focus to an application to access its menu.

It also would give a general hint as to what the HUD is supposed to do for new users.

So, keep the HUD as is, but also show the global menu bar above it and alow interaction with it.
