Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

When I open the Gnome menu using the hotkey Alt+F1, and the menu is on an auto-hide panel, the menu appears immediately, and then the panel animatedly unhides below it, while the menu stays in place (i.e., on top of the panel). The menu then jumps to a different (correct for an unhidden panel) location once I use the keyboard to move into the menu (Down key) or to switch to the next menu (Right key). I'd expect it to move to the right location straight away while opening, or to stay closed until the panel had unhidden or something. This just doesn't feel right.

It gets weirder and downright buggy when you try this:


The effect: the panel HIDES AGAIN while I still have the menu open.

That gnome-panel status update is incorrect, the upstream marked it as RESOLVED AS DUPLICATE for this bug:

That's not the same as Invalid AFAIK.

Actually, it's bug 576261 that was marked RESOLVED DUPLICATE, but the bug watch now points to 525756 and lists that as RESOLVED DUPLICATE while the source is UNCONFIRMED? Eh?
