Comment 21 for bug 10905

I can confirm this on 12.04 up to date. Another problem is that, when viewing an indicator drop-down menu (or even a right click menu on anything or a classic app menu from the global menu), you can reveal the launcher with the pointer, but it acts weirdly: it hides more quickly, it doesn't react when an icon is clicked, the names of the apps don't appear, the stacked icons don't spread...

Can't we just make it impossible to reveal the launcher when a menu is open so the behaviour of the launcher doesn't seem inconsistent or buggy?
