Thank you for your bug report, did that start recently? What version of indicator-appmenu do you have installed? When does it happen?

affects: unity (Ubuntu) → indicator-appmenu (Ubuntu)

This happens some hours ago. I have indicator-appmenu 12.10.0-0ubuntu1

The behaviour is how like two instances are spawned. It could be caused, because it crash, then I pres Alt+F1, write unity --reset on terminal, and switch back with Alt+F7. I did this often when unity crash (also my desktop get very slow running 2 o 3 days, even on unity-2d). So probably, another unity intance spawn on some moment and I get two instances. This could be a corner case. If happens again, I will make a screenshot or camera shot.

The stacktrace seems like something went wrong when a window was closed. So it could happen in other cases too.

A pointer of 0xaaaaaaaa is pretty suspicious... :)

Angel, could you test and see if this crash is still happening for you in 12.10 beta 2?

Fully updated quantal today (beta 2). This is still fully reproducible. I attach a screenshot with the two panels. This is a phisical install (64 bits), no virtualized in VM.
